Image: Scene from The Coca Cola Case by German Gutierrez and Carmen Garcia, Argus Films/National Film Board of Canada, 2009.
The Argus Films/NFB film, directed by German Gutierrez and Carmen Garcia, documents their pursuit for justice and accountability for alleged human rights and labour abuses committed by Coca Cola bottling plants, particularly in Colombia and Guatemala. The films co-directors, Gutierrez and Garcia, deny Coke's claims of defamation and breach of confidentiality. According to Gutierrez from previous interviews, everything in the film has been proven and is publicly available.
