There is more interest in food these days than ever, yet there is very little interest in the hands that pick it. In Food Chains, a documentary set in the tomato fields of Florida, an intrepid group of farmworkers battle to defeat the $4 trillion global supermarket industry. The film reveals the human cost in our food supply and the complicity of large buyers of produce like fast food and supermarkets.
The narrative of the film focuses on the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, whose work to revolutionize farm labor and to ensure a dignified life for farm workers and a more humane, transparent food chain is a story of hope and promise for the triumph of morality over corporate greed.
Food Chains premiered at the 2014 Berlin Film Festival and screened subsequently at the Tribeca Film Festival and Guadalajara Film Festival. The film’s Executive Producers include Eva Longoria and Eric Schlosser.
Donations will be collected at the screening for the Fair Food Program.
