A team of journalists investigate how human trafficking and child labor in the Ivory Coast fuels the worldwide chocolate industry. The crew interview both proponents and opponents of these alleged practices, and use hidden camera techniques to delve into the gritty world of cocoa plantations.
This is the official description from the film’s website or IMDb page.
“The Dark Side of Chocolate is a 2010 film exposing the widespread but strangely unknown-to-the-public use of child slaves in the cocoa industry.” – Tonya Teichert, FAWCO
“The film directed by Miki Mistrati and U. Roberto Romano took us behind-the-scenes into Mali and Cote d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast), showing us the grim realities of the West African leading suppliers of cocoa.” – Vanessa León, International Labor Rights Forum
