Abstract

This document responds to the tobacco industry-produced films and videos about tobacco farming, used by cigarette companies and their lobbying organization to support their political, public relations, and public policy goals. The authors argue that the positive discursive representations of tobacco farming ignored the actual behavior of tobacco companies to promote relationships of dependency and subordination for tobacco farmers and to contribute to tobacco-related poverty, child labor, and deforestation in tobacco-growing countries.
