The Coca-Cola Case

In January, February and March of 2010 the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) and Cinema Politica are teaming up to organize a tour of the documentary THE COCA-COLA CASE, a film about the legal case against Coca-Cola and their operations in Colombia.

Two lawyers and labor rights’ activists, Daniel Kovalik of the United Steel Workers of America and Terry Collingsworth of the International Rights Advocates, and their partner Ray Rogers of Corporate Campaign firmly believe that US multinational corporations should be held accountable for the shabby practices of their business associates throughout the world. To lead their battle, they resort to a law dating back to the origin of the American Constitution – The Alien Tort Claims Act – which allows foreigners to file suit in the U.S. against Americans who violate international laws. The film tells the story of their fight against one of America’s stellar icons: the Coca-Cola company.
