Globalization may be the stepping stone for many developing countries, but do not fall into the water. You might die from it.

A Killer Bargain

A Killer Bargain

Disguised like potential buyers from a fictive chain of shops in Scandinavia, a film crew reveals the harsh conditions at factories in India and documents how the production in fact is being done. From the extreme dangerous pesticide use in the cotton fields, to the environmental disasters created by the main suppliers for the Scandinavian retailers.

In large factories young men are standing unprotected in acid baths to the waist bleaching the cotton, while child workers struggle to survive. The workers are underpaid and from some of India’s poorest states. There are no unions and the daily work can be as many as 24 hours a day – seven days a week.

A Killer Bargain is an award winning film showing some of the ugly sides of globalization.
