I went to a free screening of the film “Alerte à Babylon” last night, a very French take on what the director paints as the unstoppable force that is global capitalism and our modern, industrialised society. None of us comes out of it smelling too sweet.
It’s in French, apart from some English-language interviews with Arpad Pusztai and Susan Bardocz – on GMOs – and ones in Russian, on the human health dangers posed by exposure to low-dose radioactivity.
A very thought-provoking film.
Good to see Pusztai, he of GM-potatoes-making-baby-rats-rather-sick fame, sticking to his guns despite having had his career ruined for speaking out against the interests of Monsanto and friends.
