The Dark Side of Chocolate, a documentary by award winning Danish journalist Miki Mistrati, reveals new evidence that child labor and human trafficking continue in African cocoa fields, nearly a decade after the major players in the cocoa industry promised to resolve these problems. After the film, we will discuss the issues raised by the film, and actions we can take to end the exploitation of children in the cocoa fields.
