There is so much interest in food these days but very little interest in the hands that pick that food. Food Chains is a feature length documentary that explores the abuses in farm labor as well as the modern forces that perpetuate them. The film stars a number of very powerful farmworkers including those from the Coalition of Immokalee Workers as well as activists like Eva Longoria (Executive Producer), Barry Estabrook, Dolores Huerta, Bobby Kennedy Jr, Kerry Kennedy and Eric Schlosser.
Food Chains is directed by Sanjay Rawal, whose last film, Challenging Impossibility, on the weightlifting exploits of the late spiritual leader Sri Chinmoy, premiered at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival and screened at more than 75 festivals globally winning a number of awards. Sanjay has a background in agriculture and international development having spent 10 years working in over 40 countries on policy, project development and disaster relief. The film is produced by Smriti Keshari and Hamilton Fish.
Food Chains has an anticipated release date of Spring 2013.
