Tigers is a new film by Oscar-winning director Danis Tanovic based on the true story of a former Nestlé baby milk salesman in Pakistan called Syed Aamir Raza taking on the industry with the help of IBFAN (the International Baby Food Action Network) when he realises that babies are dying as a result of his work pressuring doctors to promote formula.
One character in the film embodies some of the IBFANers who helped Aamir, including Tracey Wagner-Rizvi, Andreas Adelberger and Baby Milk Action’s Patti Rundall and Mike Brady.
We are thrilled to have Syed Aamir Raza himself as our guest speaker, as we screen this eye-opening film for the first time in Canada since its world premiere at TIFF in 2014.
We expect to sell out, so we have added a second screening at 7:30pm and are selling tickets in advance at the following locations:
