- Cast: Maurice Dekkers, Roland Duong, Teun van de Keuken
Is there such a thing as consumerism with a clear conscience? When chocolate-loving Dutch journalist Teun van de Kueken discovered the cocoa industry relied on child slavery he realised that every bite of his favourite bar made him complicit. He decided to report himself to the police and await prosecution. A clever prank blossomed into a serious cause as Teun and his colleagues set out to challenge the industry and create a guaranteed 100% slave-free chocolate bar. An entertaining, inspirational documentary that will provoke you to never accept the Fair Trade label in quite the same way again.
