In response to Dole's defamatory lawsuit against us and the film BANANAS! * we are now suing Dole!
This is because we consider ourselves to have been harmed by Dole's conduct before the screening of BANANAS! * at the Los Angeles Film Festival earlier this year. The festival choosed to take the film out of competition since Dole remarked that the films was based on false testimony. In addition, Dole has actively tarnished us with the festival's sponsors.

"We are very pleased that the truth about our film will finally be known and that the public will see that this lawsuit was simply an effort by Dole to silence the public discussion of important issues," said Gertten, the director of the film.
