This new film exposes multinational corporation culpability in the land grab of Africa which makes us reconsider where we get our fruit from. Banned in Cameroon, The Big Banana illustrates the poor working conditions in banana plantations in the Plantation du Haut Penja (PHP) and exposes the adverse impact of corporatocracy government on the people, while reaping super profits for corporations. The side effects of plantation corporations on the people of Africa - and everywhere else in the world - are abject poverty and environment degradation from chemical fumigation.
