Chocolate is something that all of us is familiar with. It is something that we eat and enjoy. Actually, it is a daily craving to many people.
But behind the tasty, delicious sweets is hidden an awful secret. While we enjoy the sweet taste of chocolate, the reality is strikingly different for African children. Have you ever wondered how chocolate is being made?
Chocolate is integrally tied to many of our holidays and other celebrations. Chocolate birthday cake, chocolate Christmas cookies, chocolate bunnies for Easter.
Any excuse to eat more chocolate! But chocolate is also associated with a handful of environmental and human rights issues that are rarely discussed, but critically important.
The Danish journalist, Miki Mistrati, who investigated the use of child labor and trafficked children in chocolate production, has directed the documentary “The Dark Side of Chocolate”.
The documentary is bringing this disturbing problem concerning child labor into focus by recording most of the footage using a secret camera.
