Sur les routes du coton
This documentary examines the globalization of the cotton industry and the challenges faced in 2005 by West African farmers as a result of the pressures of trade-distorting U.S. cotton subsidies.
Erik Orsenna interviews cotton farm labourers, distributors, traders and regulators to explore the subsidies debate and the question of how small businesses cope in an unequal climate.
In French throughout.
