Food Chains

Produced by Eva Longoria and Fast Food Nation’s Eric Schlosser, Sanjay Rawal’s new documentary Food Chains reveals the real cost of our groceries through an in-depth look at the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, a labor group of tomato pickers from Florida. This powerful film highlights the triumphs and tragedies of the individual farm workers who put the food on our plates.
