Once upon a time, there was a documentary called BANANAS!* (SFGFF 2011) about conditions at a Dole-owned banana plantation in Nicaragua. But this is not that movie. This movie is about what happened after Dole decided it was going to squash BANANAS!* –by any means necessary. What follows is a story that’s both incredibly thrilling and deeply inspiring, as filmmaker Fredrik Gertten makes the decision to fight the Dole company… and document the whole thing, of course.
BIG BOYS GONE BANANAS!*
Fredrik Gertten, 2012, Sweden, 88 min.
