Overcoming the Odds: A Story of the World's First Global Health and Corporate Accountability Treaty
Overcoming the Odds tells the dramatic story of how countries of the Global South, non-governmental organizations, and activists challenged the tobacco industry--and won. Filmmakers Kelly Anderson and Tami Gold traveled with Corporate Accountability International to the United Nations in Geneva to record the adoption of the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC), the first global health and corporate accountability treaty. As a leader pushing for a strong treaty, Corporate Accountability International worked closely with the World Health Organization, government negotiators, public interest organizations including members of the Network for Accountability of Tobacco Transnationals (NATT), and activists from around the world in the campaign to secure passage of the treaty.
All proceeds of the film go toward Corporate Accountability International's campaigns to stop irresponsible and dangerous corporate actions.
