CHILDREN OF THE VINE
About the project
A global nightmare is unfolding as scientists and farmers stand at a crossroads questioning the impacts of Roundup, the most widely used herbicide in the world.
The feature documentary Children Of The Vine investigates how Monsanto’s 40 years of misleading science about Roundup is killing farm workers and impacting public health and the environment across the globe. A shocking exploration into the deadly consequences of Roundup, the film blends investigative reporting with a potent argument that the best solutions starts with banning Roundup and investing in organic,
biodynamic and regenerative farming practices. Directed by award winning filmmaker Brian Lilla, Children Of The Vine is half way through production and raising funds to complete principal photography by the end of 2020.
