La Banane (The Big Banana)
Wednesday, February 13, 7PM
Banned in Cameroon for highlighting the adverse impact of government support for high corporate profits, The Big Banana explores the devastating effects of land grabbing and other questionable tactics on communities, including poor working conditions, pollution, and health problems related to pesticides. Bieleu features local cooperatives working with fair trade organizations and makes us reconsider the sources of the fruit we buy.
Shown in conjunction with Union Programming's Share the Earth Environmental Film Series.
Franck Bieleu, DVD, 85 min, Cameroon, 2011 (French)
