Chocolate in the Jungle


The film “Chocolate in the Jungle” documents efforts by a small group of Ecuadorians who are sustainably working the land in the Chocó Rainforest. This community of small farmers is growing cacao and selling the beans to French companies willing to pay four times typical chocolate prices for the organically grown crop. In order to be part of this venture, however, residents must leave at least 75 percent of their forested land unfarmed.
