Sweet Water is happy to be working with Milwaukee Film again as a community sponsor of the film Big Boys Gone Bananas!*
What is a big corporation capable of in order to protect its brand? When Dole Corporation leaders discovered Bananas!*, a 2009 documentary recounting the lawsuit of 12 Nicaraguan plantation workers against Dole, they tried to silence Swedish filmmaker Fredrik Gertten with lawsuits and smear campaigns. In Big Boys Gone Bananas!*, Gertten documents Dole’s dirty tricks, illustrating free expression’s fragility and an individual’s power to fight corporations.
