"The Bitter Aftertaste" casts huge doubts on the capacity of chocoholics and shopaholics to transform the lives of farmers in the developing world through their supermarket trolleys. Shot in Ghana and the UK, this hard-hitting documentary is sure to stir more than coffee and leave a bitter taste in the mouths of those who espouse Fair Trade as a mechanism for development. The film asks the questions often thought but never asked, does Fair Trade really change anything or just make Western consumers feel good? A must-see for everyone who believes the developing world deserves better.
