Dole Cancels Action Against "Bananas"

Published torsdag 15 oktober 2009 kl 10.16
From the film "Bananas!"

The American banana company Dole has withdrawn its law suit against Swedish film maker Fredrik Gerteen – whose documentary “Bananas!” claims  the company’s use of dangerous pesticides made 12 Nicaragua plantation workers sterile and that the chemicals were used long after they were banned.

The company motivates its decision on the large scale debate in Sweden over the film and freedom of expression.

   

 The film has been screened for Swedish parliamentarians and has wide spread distribution in the nation’s cinemas – with observers noting that the company’s legal action has helped stir extra interest in the film.
