The League of Women Voters will present The World According to Monsanto, a 2008 documentary film directed by Marie-Monique Robin, on Saturday, May 14 at 2:00pm in the Community Room. The film is based on Robin's three-year investigation into the international practices of the agricultural giant Monsanto Corporation. Monsanto controls most of the yield of the world's genetically-modified corn and soy -- ingredients found in more than ninety-five percent of American households. The World According to Monsanto examines the long-term worldwide health, environmental and economic consequences of corporate control of the food supply. A panel discussion with local farmers will follow the film's screening.
Registration is required.
