French Documentary " The World According to Monsanto" shows the company in a grim light

I came across this french documentary about Monsanto when looking more into GM foods. After watching the trailer, it looks very promising and quite interesting. It specifically covers GM foods and their impact globally on farmers. Also, I was talking to my roommate about GM foods and she told me that lots of dairy companies were sued a few years ago by Monsanto in her home state, Maine. I found this article in the The Portland Press Herald about Maine farmers opposition to this agribusiness giant:
