I love documentaries. The power of a camera and a mic are completely astonishing. With these simple tools you can expose powerful truths, in ways no other media can. For example, feeling good about that coke you just tossed back? Good, Drone Boy, here is a documentary that might make you think twice about picking up another one. Plus, soda just isn’t good for you. Stop the killing and improve your health. See, it’s a win win. I can see that Drone Fever clearing up already.
The Coca-Cola Case In this feature length documentary, directors German Gutiérrez and Carmen Garcia present a searing indictment of the Coca-Cola empire and its alleged kidnapping, torture and murder of union leaders trying to improve working conditions in Colombia, Guatemala and Turkey.
The filmmakers follow labour rights lawyers Daniel Kovalik and Terry Collingsworth and an activist for the ‘Stop Killer-Coke!’ campaign, Ray Rogers, as they attempt to hold the giant U.S. multinational beverage company accountable in this legal and human rights battle.
