About the film

Into the Weeds: Dewayne “Lee” Johnson vs. Monsanto chronicles the explosive and historic legal case that exposed Monsanto’s complicity in concealing the known carcinogenic effects of exposure to the popular weed killer Roundup. Paced like a legal thriller, the documentary examines intersections of human rights, health, environmental justice, and corporate responsibility.
