The idiot cycle: What you aren't being told about cancer
The Idiot Cycle, a French-Canadian documentary, alleges six major chemical companies are responsible for decades of cancer causing chemicals and pollution, while also developing cancer treatments and drugs. It also argues these companies own the most patents on genetically modified crops that have never been tested for long term health impacts like cancer.
The film was shot in Canada (Sarnia, Ottawa, Toronto, ON and Saskatoon, SK), the United States (Memphis, TN, Midland, MI, and Washington DC), The Netherlands (Amsterdam), France (Agen, Paris), Italy (Bologna), Germany (Weilheim, Frankfurt, Bad Neihum, Burladingen, Tübingen), Belgium (Brussels), England (London, Hemel Hempstead), and Northern Ireland (Coleraine).
It was an official selection at eight international film festivals including RIDM in Montreal, IDFA in Amsterdam, OXDOX in Oxford and the International Health Film Festival in Greece. In 2010 it was awarded the "Green Report" Award at the Romanian Film Festival Document.Art
