Win tickets to Big Boys Gone Bananas! screening and Q&A in London

Big Boys Gone Bananas

Preview by Jack Foley

CORPORATE bullying, scare tactics, and PR-spin become the daily life of documentary filmmaker Fredrik Gertten all because he made a film about bananas.

As Gertten’s film Bananas is finished, the story of his next film begins – Gertten is compelled to pick up his camera again sooner than he thinks when Dole Food Company threaten to sue his film documenting the law suit brought against them by 12 Nicaraguan farmers.

This personal tale shows how easily the livelihood of documentary filmmakers can be put into jeopardy.

Big Boys Gone Bananas! could be called a thriller but it’s certainly a cautionary tale for those who want the truth.

The film is released in UK cinemas on September 21, 2012. But on Tuesday, September 18, the Prince Charles Cinema in London is showing a special preview followed by a Q&A with director Fredrik Gertten + guests.

The screening takes place at 6.30pm and tickets cost £6.50 and £4. You can buy them here
