Summary

  • This program is made by Indonesian palm oil plantation workers and union members. Using their own forbidden history as a case study, the Indonesian filmmakers trace the development of contemporary globalisation from its roots in colonialism to the present. Also exposes the devastating role of militarism and repression in building the "global economy" and explores the relationships between trade, third-world debt, and international institutions like the IMF and the World Trade Organization.
