About the film

This enormously powerful documentary chronicles Monsanto’s race to spread genetically modified food and to take over food production throughout the world.

Monsanto has produced some of the most toxic products ever sold, including PCBs and Agent Orange.  The company’s controversial past includes misleading reports, pressure tactics, collusion, and attempted corruption.  Exposing secret documents with first-hand accounts by victims, scientists, and politicians, this widely praised film exposes why Monsanto’s frightening strategy profoundly threatens our health, environment, and economy.
