Organizer/Author
The World According To Monsanto (109 min.) 2008 French
By Marie-Monique Robin
Marie-Monique Robin has produced a powerful and frightening film in understanding the danger on a global level of out of control genetic engineering and the food industry. Workers, farmers, consumers and the environmentalists are all threatened by the unregulated development and growth products from this industry. The US media have censored the role of Monsanto and other biotech companies in spreading genetically engineered products that are harmful to workers in the laboratory, farmers and consumers around the world. Injured biotech worker David Bell who worked at Agraquest in Davis, which was owned by a former Monsanto Pest Division molecular biologist Pam Marrone, is one of the victims of this unbridled development and cover-up by the biotech industry.
