The Tobacco Conspiracy 2006
689 mg/52 mns
Discover global industry tactics through a film co-produced by the National Film Board of Canada and KUIV Productions and producer, Nadia Collot. France..
More than three years of investigating all over the world has allowed Nadia Collot to decipher the attitudes of an industry that, in spite of many prevention campaigns still expands its power at the cost of public health. Three aspects of industry behaviour are studied :
* Scientific subversion : proof of the manipulation of scientific evidence and buying of scientists to maintain controversy over the health issues related to smoking, but even more so today, related to environmental tobacco smoke.
* Ideological subversion : whether it be through clever and disguised product placements on screen or TV, creating its own biased health messages, implementing subtle and ingenious marketing tactics or using political lobbying manoeuvres, the tobacco industry has gone to unbelievable extents to do what it says it never will.
* Economic strategies : to develop as fast as possible, to infiltrate closed-market countries, to better reach the young and the poor, smuggling is one of the ways the industry has chosen to organize its international growth.
