French public awareness of the damaging impacts of pesticides took another giant leap forward on 5 November 2008 with the film premier of 'Nos enfants nous accuseront', a feature length documentary now showing in mainstream cinemas across France. The film is the brainchild of Jean Paul Jaud a famous French TV Director who became aware of the consequences of industrial agriculture having recovered from cancer a few years ago. Following his illness Jean Paul decided to make a documentary on the effects of hazardous pesticides. His film centres on Barjac - a typical rural village situated in southern France where local residents decided to take action against the effects of pesticides and whose school canteen now serves only organic food.
