Subject Mongrel Media Presents Film: "The World According to Monsanto"
Poster Handle Anonymous Coward
Post Content
Mongrel Media proudly presents
The World According to Monsanto
a Marie-Monique Robin film

"A film that should be seen as widely as possible...
scrupulous, thorough and damning."
- Malcom Fraser, MONTREAL MIRROR

"A devastating exposé...will freeze the blood in your veins."
- John Griffin, THE GAZETTE

Monsanto is the world leader in genetically modified organisms (GMOs), as well as one of the most controversial corporations in industrial history. This century-old empire has created some of the most toxic products ever sold, including polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and the herbicide Agent Orange. Based on a painstaking investigation, The World According to Monsanto puts together the pieces of the company’s history, calling on hitherto unpublished documents and numerous first-hand accounts.

Today, Monsanto likes to style itself as a “life sciences” company. The leader in genetically modified seeds, engineered to resist its herbicide Roundup, claims it wants to solve world hunger while protecting the environment. In the light of its troubling past, can we really believe these noble intentions? Misleading reports, collusion, pressure tactics and attempts at corruption: the history of Monsanto is filled with disturbing episodes. Behind its clean, green image, Monsanto is tightening its grasp on the world seed market, striving for market supremacy to the detriment of food security and the global environment.
