Description

This short animation an excerpt from the feature length documentary Banana Land: Blood, Bullets and Poison. This animation explains that the United Fruit Company (now Chiquita) and the U.S. State Department supported the mass killing of innocent people trying to organize for better working conditions. The massacre occurred in Ciénaga, Colombia on December 6, 1928.
The Disconnect: For consumers, bananas are a delicious and nutritious start to to the day, a healthy snack and a fixture in our fruit bowls. For millions of residents in the banana lands, the production of bananas means social upheaval, violence and pesticide poisoning. Banana Land explores the origins of these disparate realities, and opens the conversation on how workers, producers and consumers can address this disconnect.
