In the isolated hill towns of the Dominican Republic, cacao farmers have been fighting a losing battle with the global economy for as long as anyone can remember. In the village of Loma Guaconejo, things are about to change. If the farmers here can win organic certification and leverage the benefits of Fair Trade, they just might manage to turn the system on its head. To pull it off will take the cooperation of an entire community. Featuring a stirring soundtrack by local folk musicians, and an inside look at chocolate production from seed to pod to bean to powder, this short documentary took the Grand Jury Prize for its category at the Seattle International Film Festival.
