The Chocolate Case

A documentary about a Dutch satirical sketch on slavery in chocolate production which develops into the creation of a global ethical chocolate company.

It’s bizarre because what starts out as anti-commercialist comedy ends with a commercial entity. It’s a bit like the weird trajectory of Bob Geldof’s life which was to be a rock star that at one point organised a charity single but developed into someone who is now far more closely associated with charity work than music. The whole thing really grows arms and legs and walks all over the people who created it. One thing I took away from it is I am incredibly naive about FairTrade certification.
