Exclusive: Food Chains Gets A New Clip

Posted by Rudie Obias On April - 17 - 2014 0 Comment

We all need food to survive. Food nowadays is more than just survival, but it’s also for pleasure and competition. But before you enjoy your next salad, think about how your food gets to your table. A new documentary called “Food Chains” examines the workers who harvest your food and how unfairly they’re being treated by corporations and the United States. Visit Films released a new clip from the documentary exclusively to ShockYa.com. The contents of the clip is both haunting and eye-opening.

There is more interest in food in the United States today than at any time in our history. Yet, there is very little interest in the hands that pick our food – the hundreds of thousands of people to whom we are all connected through our purchases at grocery stores, farmers’ markets and restaurants.

Food Chains explores critical human rights issues in American agriculture from wage theft to modern-day slavery and exposes the powers that perpetuate these un-American violations of human dignity. The film stars dozens of farmworkers as well as Eva Longoria (Executive Producer), Dolores Huerta, Eric Schlosser, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Barry Estabrook, and the Coalition of Immokalee Workers.

Eva Longoria, producer and cast; Eric Schlosser, cast; Lucas Benitez, activist and cast; Gerardo Reyes Chavez, activist and cast Hamilton Fish, producer, Smitri Keshari, producer, and Sanjay Rawal, director

“Food Chains” hits theaters in New York City on April 26 and the rest of the country in October 2014. For more information, visit foodchainsfilm.com.
