The Emperor's New Clothes: a cautionary tale of free trade
Filmed in Canada, the USA and Mexico, this film looks at these countries before and after the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). It looks at the profound effects that economic agreements between big business and government can have on human lives, including cuts to social programs, mass unemployment, environmental damage and demoralisation. A group of Canadian workers go to Mexico to examine labour conditions there. National Film Board (NFB).
