Abstract:

Follow journalist and documentary filmmaker Marie-Monique Robin's three-year journey across four continents to investigate the practices of a multinational agribusiness corporation, Monsanto. Monsanto currently controls the majority of the yield of the world's genetically modified corn and soy, ingredients found in more than 95 percent of American households, and its legal and political tactics to maintain this monopoly are the subject of concern, especially to the world's small-scale farmers.
