The World According to Monsanto (17-Feb-2008)

Original Title: Le monde selon Monsanto

Director: Marie-Monique Robin

Writer: Marie-Monique Robin

Keywords: Documentary, Food Supply

Belgian film documents various malignant practices of Monsanto, particularly with respect to genetically modified crops. GM crops are creating a monoculture, trapping farmers into dependency, and pushing them closer to the edge of existence such that they can no longer survive an off season. Much of the material is quite good, but a poor interview subject and a spectacularly bad decision to show repeated Googling of information weakens the film considerably.
