Documentary film of child slavery for chocolate farms

Did you know that the vast majority of the chocolate you eat was produced in part by child slave labor? The Ivory Coast in east Africa is responsible for a huge portion of the world’s cocoa supply and they almost exclusively use child slave labor. The farmers kidnap or buy kidnapped child slaves and put them to work in horrible conditions. They sell the chocolate at cheap prices to some of the biggest manufacturers in the world and no one is the wiser. I know this because I watched The Dark Side of Chocolate, a documentary film made by a few brave souls. Others have traveled to The Ivory Coast to report on this issue and ended up murdered for their troubles. These gentlemen managed to make it out and come home with a brilliant movie that depicts this horrible atrocity. You need to see this important documentary film.
