Brian Lilla Announces New Project
Old friend Brian Lilla announces his latest documentary, “Children of the Vine.”
Here’s what Brian has to say about the project:
“After a year and a half of research, I’ve decided to make of an investigative documentary that reveals pesticides impact on public health. I now find myself going up against one of the largest chemical manufacturers in the world: Monsanto.
This summer the production got off with the ground with incredibly revealing shoots of scientists, lawyers and investigators working on the front lines of preventing toxic farming practices.
The production also journeyed to the heartland of middle America with corn, wheat and soybean farmers who were more than happy to shoot their interviews in industrial barns filled with Atrazine, Glyphosate and in one farmer’s words, “Enough nitrogen to blow up a city block.”
I’ve shot a lot of bizarre stuff over the last twenty years and “Children Of The Vine” is turning out to be a toxic mix of political thriller meets science fiction.

Thanks to all of you who have been supportive of my journey as a filmmaker. Every time I make a new film, it’s like climbing a mountain. And every time I’ve almost been killed while climbing it was way more fun being tied into the rope with someone close to me.”
