There is so much interest in food these days but very little interest in the hands that pick that food. The James Beard award-winning film FOOD CHAIN$ exposes the horrific abuses farmworkers face and reveals the forces behind that exploitation: the $4 trillion global supermarket industry.
FOOD CHAIN$ tracks the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, an intrepid and highly lauded group of tomato pickers from Southern Florida as they battle the giant Floridian grocery chain, Publix. Their story is one of hope and promise for the triumph of morality over corporate greed – to ensure a dignified life for farmworkers and a more humane, transparent food chain.
