After her best-selling book and film, The World According to Monsanto, award-winning journalist Marie-Monique Robin presents her new documentary, “Roundup Facing Its Judges,” on the global use of glyphosate-based herbicides. She deconstructs the mechanisms of one of the greatest environmental and health scandals in modern history, and showcases an exceptional investigation into a subject that concerns all of us because glyphosate is everywhere: in the soils, the water, the food and the air.
The guiding thread of the documentary is the Monsanto International Tribunal, held in The Hague in October 2016, and its recommendation for a new international law against “ecocide.”
This film contains heavy themes, graphic images and language. Run time is approximately 90 minutes. Admission is free, with a suggested donation of $8.
Tuesday, March 5 at 6:30 p.m., Main Library. Doors open 30 minutes before start time. Arrive early to avoid lines and get the best seats. The Oak Park Public Library is an ADA-compliant, accessible venue.
