On Thursday, February 21 at 7 p.m., Wild Goose Creative at 2491 Summit Street will offer a public screening of The Dark Side of Chocolate, a film that exposes the ongoing use of child, forced, and trafficked labor in the West African cocoa industry and explains how much of this cocoa ends up in the chocolate we eat.
A $5 donation is suggested. In partnership with The Salvation Army, the audience will be invited to join a discussion and take part in anti-trafficking actions after the film. The event will also include free fair trade chocolate!
This event is part of the year-long Films For Action: Human Rights Film Series. Documentaries that focus on human rights issues will be screened on the third Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. Each film will be followed by an open discussion and actions led by central Ohio non-profits.
Wild Goose Creative is a chapter of Films for Action, a non-profit that uses the power of alternative media to raise awareness of important social and environmental issues to inspire action at the community level.
