Environmentally friendly electric cars, sustainably produced food, fair production: Hooray! The big companies would have us believe that we can save the world just by buying the right stuff. But this is a widespread and dangerous lie.

In his latest documentary, Werner Boote (Plastic Planet, Everything’s Under Control) joins forces with Katharina Hartmann, an expert in greenwashing, to explore how we can fight back against this lie.

The screening on Wed 6 Nov featured an informal and informative conversation with:

  • Debbie Luffman, Product Director, Finisterre.
  • Bernardo De Cerqueira Fernandes, MA International Relations student, University of Exeter.
  • A representative fro mGreen Peace Exeter

Chaired by Ian Cook, Professor of Cultural Geography, University of Exeter.
