Following the film “World according to Monsanto”, director Marie-Monique Robin continues the battle in which she reveals the size of the negative impact of one of the most marketed herbicide – “Roundup”, which contains extremely harmful ingredient – glyphosate. The effects of this herbicide, used for more than 40 years, are visible all over the world and result in contaminated soil, water, air, the development of diseases in humans and animals. Despite the researches that show the link between the use of this herbicide and the development of cancer in humans and effects on the hormone system, as well as, the prohibition of the use of glyphosate in the European Union, the powerful Monsanto lobby does not allow this herbicide to be removed from the sales worldwide.

Film „Roundup facing its Judges“ goes to the core of this scandal, one of the largest in modern history, and documents the establishment and operation of the Hague Tribunal against Monsanto, which was founded by numerous civic initiatives, aiming to show all the crimes against humanity committed by Monsanto, and also that, on the basis of the presented documentation, the term “ecocide” becomes recognized as a part of international law.
