A French documentary called “The World According to Monsanto” caused quite a stir in the US alternative agriculture community this week. Dubbed “A documentary that Americans won’t ever see,” this hour-and-fifty-minute documentary is available free through google video.
Pretty cool if you ask me, but I haven’t watched the whole thing.
Monsanto was founded in 1901 by equally scary looking John F. Queeny.
The film first aired on ARTE, a French-German cultural channel on March 11 and made its way to the states by early April where many Americans saw it. This doumentary about scary mega agribusiness corporation, Monsanto, was made by French journalist and film-maker Marie-Monique Robin. The fact that there is not that much else out there about the film probably suggests that not many other people have watched the whole documentary either. I’ll have to watch it and get back to you…
