Filmed on five continents, this provocative documentary takes a close look at the global agribusiness system, which is turning the world's food supply into a global supermarket, buying food at the lowest prices--seemingly regardless of the effect on small farmers and local populations--and selling it at the highest price and the greatest profit whenever possible.
"Clear and convincing. Excellent for studies of population, land use, food economics, international banking, social organization, history and comparative government." -- Amer. Assn. for the Advancement of Science
"A clearheaded and moving film about the rise of global agribusiness and the disturbing effects of first-world economic concerns on third-world food supply ...Many of the issues investigated remain at the core of the global hunger debate." -- Gourmet Magazine, February 2007
