Big Boys Gone Bananas at Bath Film Festival

On Tuesday the 20th of November at 8.45 Bath Film Festival will be showing ‘Big Boys Gone Bananas’. The director, Swedish Fredrick Gertten, initial intention to produce the film ‘Bananas!’ was drastically changed when he became aware of the plight of banana workers in Nicaragua, who became sterile due to the use of a banned pesticide, resulting in a lawsuit against Dole Food. The feature investigates the difficulties faced by these Nicaraguans and exposes Gertten’s heroic struggle to be heard. Tickets are currently on sale ans should be purchased quickly in order to experience the informative and emotional tale.
