I am currently studying the Banana trade and women’s rights for my A-level in Anthropology. It is very interesting that this movie was one of the last results I saw when searching for Plantation workers rights, the media definitely wants to keep this hidden! And only to benefit yet more TNCs. They should be ashamed of themselves. Yet there are plenty of articles out there confirming the facts of mis-treated workers, I suppose a film is more ‘dangerous’ for TNCs like Dole as it is ‘’palatable for the masses.’’

Fantastic documentary “Bananas!” and great follow up in “Big Boys” I hope the Swedish maker comes out of this ok, he’s supporting human rights and is a courageous and intelligent man.

What do you think?

So what's on your mind? Would you like to share your thoughts on the film?
