What happens when one man goes up against a corporation? Find out in Big Boys Gone Bananas!*, the story of Swedish documentarian Fredrick Gertten and his battle with the Dole Food Company.
In his previous movie, Bananas!*, Gertten told the story of a lawsuit filed against Dole Food Company by a group of plantation workers. It was selected to make a world premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival, but the screening never happened. Under pressure from Dole, the Los Angeles Film Festival pulled Bananas!* from the schedule. And that was just the beginning.
In his follow-up film, Big Boys Gone Bananas!*, Gertten documents the backlash from Dole because of Bananas!*. From attacks on Gertten’s character to a full-on lawsuit against him, Gertten reveals the tactics that the company employed to bring him down.
Find out what happened when you catch Big Boys Gone Bananas!*, premiering Saturday, December 1, on DIRECTV’s AUDIENCE Network™.
