Q&A’s with BIG BOYS GONE BANANAS filmmakers and subjects in Pasadena and Santa Monica

Q&A’s with the filmmakers and subjects of BIG BOYS GONE BANANAS!* along special guests this weekend.

What is a big corporation capable of in order to protect its brand? Swedish filmmaker Fredrik Gertten’s experienced this recently. His previous film BANANAS!* (2009) recounts the lawsuit that 12 Nicaraguan plantation workers brought against the fruit giant Dole Food Company.

What follows is an unparalleled thriller that has Gertten capturing the entire process – from DOLE attacking the producers with a defamation lawsuit, bullying scaretactics, to media-control and PR-spin. This personal film reveals precisely how a multinational will stop at nothing to get its way.
