The film tells the story of three Dutch journalists who uncover child labour in the cocoa production chain, which triggers them to try to persuade large corporations to end these unethical practices once and for all. Scorned and rejected by the industry, and having sought in vain to become imprisoned for their cause, the trio sets out on a mission to develop the first ‘slave-free’ chocolate bar known as ‘Tony’s Chocolonely’ – now one of Holland’s leading chocolate brands. This screening will be shown in partnership with LSE IDEAS and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the UK at the London School of Economics in London.

The screening will be followed by a conversation with guest speakers; Arjen Boekhold, Cocoa Game Changer at Tony's Chocolonely; Marjolein Busstra, Legal Counsel at the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs; Charlotte Williams, Head of Child Rights and Business at UNICEF UK; moderated by Dr. Mary Martin, Director of the UN Business and Human Security Initiative at LSE IDEAS
