The Chocolate Case
Directed by Benthe Forrer
Netherlands | Dutch/French/English/German w/ English Subtitles | Documentary | 2016 | 90 min
Print source: Offbeat Cinema
Sponsor: Lake Champlain Chocolates | Come to the screening early and enjoy a taste of these fabulous chocolates! The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Eric Lampman, President of LCC who will talk about the chocolate industry.

The Chocolate Case follows the incredible journey of three Dutch journalists, who tried to persuade large corporations to end the use of child labor in the chocolate industry, but when rebuffed, decided to take matters into their own hands by creating the world’s first slave-free chocolate bar.

Their epic 10 year journey, resulting in the creation of Tony’s Chocolonely, now one of Holland’s leading brands, is beautifully pieced together using archive footage, combined with new material, resulting in an up-tempo, funny, sometimes moving, but overall inspiring film.
