Fredrik Gertten | ’09 | US | 88m
*Q&A w/Gertten and Composer Nathan Larson
7:30 at Maysles

“An extremely well crafted film…This is life. This is litigation. This is a front row seat to a history making event, that of third world claimants being heard as plaintiffs for the first time in a U.S. Court. That in and of itself makes this film worthwhile…And as with all good documentaries, it raises questions – and not just about the legal turmoil – but about corporate responsibility, ethics and human rights. ”
Debbie Lynn Elias for n:zone magazine
