March 25, 2011
The Dark Side of Chocolate :
Director: Miki Mistrati & U. Roberto Romano | Producer: Helle Faber
Genre: Documentary | Produced In: 2010 | Country: Denmark
Tags: Africa, Crime, Europe, Human Rights, Trafficking

Synopsis: Children in Germany eat chocolate every day of the year. They enjoy the delicious taste of cocoa, which originated in Africa. But behind the production of their delicious treats, there is another taste altogether: the taste of child abusers and child slavery. In this program we will bring the chocolate makers to book, and confront them with our visual evidence. We will reveal the conditions under which the apparently innocuous chocolate bar is produced, and thereafter follow the coco beans’ route from the plantation to the chocolate bar in Germany, all with the consumer oblivious to the full story behind what their chocolate bar actually contains. In the process, those responsible will be held accountable. “The Dark Side of Chocolate” is a journalistic documentary which will reveal for the first time on film the hideous truth behind the manufacturing of German and international chocolate, as sold and enjoyed in Germany and the rest of the world.

    Wow, this synopsis makes me want to see that for myself. Human trade sucks and it destroys many human beings.
