For Big Tobacco, Indonesia is the new Marlboro Country

“Sex, Lies and Cigarettes” documentary airs on Tuesday night

Posted by: Editor | Jun 24, 2011

Widening its lens beyond the image of Indonesia’s infamous “smoking baby,” Current TV plans to air an hour long documentary Tuesday night that exposes the tobacco industry’s deadly expansion into Indonesia, where it is addicting a new generation and helping to create a global epidemic of deaths caused by tobacco use.  

In "Sex, Lies & Cigarettes," correspondent Christof Putzel reports on how the decline of smoking in the West has prompted  Big Tobacco's determined hunt for new consumers in some of the poorest nations on earth— and how a group of advocates is fighting back.

The show airs on Vanguard, Current TV’s documentary series, at 9 PM EST on Tuesday, June 28.

Check out the trailer, then watch the show.
