Film Description:
American agriculture has in many respects been the envy of the world. U.S. agri-business consistently produces more food on less land and at cheaper cost than the farmers of any other nation. What could possibly be wrong with that? According to the growing ranks of organic farmers, “slow food” activists and concerned consumers cited in the new documentary Food, Inc., the answer is “plenty.” As recounted in this sweeping, shockingly informative documentary, sick animals, environmental degradation, tainted and unhealthy food and obesity, diabetes and other health issues are only the more obvious problems with a highly mechanized and centralized system that touts efficiency — and the low costs and high profits that result from it — as the supreme value in food production.

Treeman: Search For The Cure


36-year old, Dede, from Indonesia is afflicted with a terrible disease that is encasing his body with tree like roots.

Thick branch like growths on his hands and feet make him incapable of carrying out even the simplest tasks. He can no longer work, therefore, he cannot provide financially for his 2 teenage children.

The tree like roots on Dede’s body grow up to 5cm a year and he has hundreds of smaller growths all over his face and body.

American dermatologist, Dr Gaspari, hears of Dede’s story and goes to Indonesia to meet Dede. He finds that Dede suffers from the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), or common warts.

Dede’s case is extreme, because he has a low immune deficiency that has allowed the virus to flourish to a massive, deforming infection.

Though Dr. Gaspari offers to try to cure Dede with drug treatments, Indonesian doctors have moved forward with surgeries to remove Dede’s warts.
