Description

Explore the history of the notorious United Fruit Company and how its influence over the banana industry impacted Central America.

--

In December 1910, the exiled former leader Manuel Bonilla boarded a borrowed yacht and set sail for Honduras in hopes of reclaiming power by whatever means necessary. Bonilla had a powerful backer: the notorious organization known throughout Latin America as El Pulpo. It was a U.S. corporation trafficking in, of all things, bananas. John Soluri investigates the United Fruit Company.

Lesson by John Soluri, directed by Sofia Pashaei.
