The Coca-Cola Case - A documentary film about Coke and labour rights in the bottling plants.


In January, February and March of 2010 the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) and Cinema Politica are teaming up to organize a tour of the documentary THE COCA-COLA CASE, a film about the legal case against Coca-Cola and their operations in Colombia. Below are the tour dates, the film's synopsis, trailer and other information.

***UPDATE***On January 11, 2010, lawyers representing Coca-Cola sent Cinema Politica a letter implying that by showing THE COCA COLA CASE throughout our network we were violating the law. As far as we have been told, this is not the case, and we are continuing with our plans to screen this critical and controversial documentary throughout our network.

Film Synopsis

Colombia is the trade union murder capital of the world. Since 2002, more than 470 workers’ leaders have been brutally killed, usually by paramilitaries hired by private companies intent on crushing the unions. Among these unscrupulous corporate brands is the poster boy for American business: Coca-Cola.

Talk to Martin Gil: His brother Isidro was killed at point-blank range while working at the Coca-Cola bottling plant in Carepa, because he was part of a union bargaining unit. Like most violent crimes committed against Colombian union leaders, Gil’s murder went unpunished.
However, U.S. lawyers Daniel Kovalik and Terry Collingsworth, as well as activist Ray Rogers, stepped in and launched an ambitious crusade against the behemoth Coca-Cola. In an incredible three-year saga, filmmakers Germán Gutiérrez and Carmen Garcia follow these heroes in a legal game of cat and mouse. From Bogotá to New York, Guatemala to Atlanta, Washington to Canada, The Coca-Cola Case maintains the suspense of a hard-fought struggle.

The lawyers filed several cases at the U.S. federal court against Cola-Cola for murder, abduction and torture committed in Colombia and Guatemala. Thanks to activist Ray Rogers, they also attacked the brand image of the Atlanta-based giant, with the devastating campaign Stop Killer Coke!, causing dozens of U.S. colleges and universities to boycott the drink.
Still the company would not give up. After five years of haggling, will the lawyers get justice? In the end, they reach a settlement of sorts, but what will the victims choose - cash, or power and integrity?

Trailer :arrow:

Ash hatte das ja schon mal erwähnt aber ich dachte noch das wäre eine Urban Legend - heftig, heftig!
Die Doku scheint's auch demnächst auf DVD zu geben. Klingt wirklich nicht uninteressant.

Kommt das Ding auch in Deutschland raus? Interessiert mich sehr. Was CocaCola in Südamerica abzieht ist schon heftig. Aber es soll noch schlimmere Firmen geben wie Nestle. Allgemein ist das Thema ja noch ein brach liegendes Land für viele Dokus.

Ob Sie nach Deutschland kommt weiss ich nicht. Denke mal fast nicht obgleich Sie mich sehr interessieren würde.
