Green Screens Presents The World According to Monsanto

Events:

Green Screens: The World According to Monsanto

Green Screens partners films from the National Film Board with experts and panellists from the Canadian Institute for Environmental Law and Policy.

The World According to Monsanto

Monsanto is the world leader in genetically modified organisms (GMOs), as well as one of the most controversial corporations in industrial history. This century-old empire has created some of the most toxic products ever sold, including polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and the herbicide Agent Orange. Based on a painstaking investigation, The World According to Monsanto puts together the pieces of the company's history, calling on hitherto unpublished documents and numerous first-hand accounts.

Following the screening, Anne Mitchell and Pinayur Rajagopal will be present for a Q&A with the audience. Anne Mitchell, CIELAP's former Executive Director, was previously a representative on the Canadian Biotechnology Advisory Committee and is a member of the Biotechnology Reference Group of the Canadian Council of Churches. Pinayur Rajagopal worked at the Max Planck Institute in Munich before coming to Toronto to teach at York University in Toronto. The two are working on a pamphlet on agricultural biotechnology to be published by the Quaker Institute for the Future.

When: Wednesday November 3rd, 7PM

Where: NFB Mediatheque, 150 John St (at Richmond St W), Toronto (Osgoode subway station)
