    Film Intent

    michael — 5 years ago

    In October 2008, I got a call out of the blue. It was from Lalita Krishna. I had heard the name before. A long time ago, we had both worked for the same TV station. But we didn’t really know each other. A mutual friend had suggested to Lalita that she call me.

    Lalita informed me that she wanted to produce a documentary on chocolate. We briefly discussed how several “commodity” documentaries had recently been produced – specifically on coffee and diamonds. Both of these looked at how the production of these goods came to us on the back of slave labour and that they are part of a large, covert and politicized industry.

    Four Narratives

    michael — 5 years ago

    Three years ago, when I was thinking up the concept for Semisweet, I felt very strongly that I needed more than one perspective to tell the big universal story behind chocolate. The idea was that chocolate is so much more than just candy – for many, it’s really a way of life. So, I came up with four separate stories from four very different parts of the world. Although these stories never actually intersect, they all share the same deep connection with chocolate. And, together, they give a well-rounded view of the overall impact of chocolate.

Choco-locate in Ontario Business Report

When award winning filmmaker Lalita Krishna was in Silver Springs, Maryland, pitching PBS on her new documentary "Semi-sweet," she found herself in a mall looking for some of the sweet stuff to take to the meeting. That's when she had a "light-bulb moment" about the perfect "transmedia" extension to her documentary about "the world of chocolate," which she was proposing to shoot at locations in Africa, Europe, the US and Canada.

'Film tells the not-so-sweet side of chocolate'

What do you think of when you think of chocolate? Decadence? Dieting? An industry rife with exploitation and labour abuses?

Toronto director Michael Allcock offers a peek at the various sides of chocolate in the new documentary Semisweet: Life In Chocolate, airing on TVO on June 6. The film tells four stories – of Ron Obadia and Nadine Artemis, two raw food enthusiasts; of employees who live and work in Hershey, Pa., known as “The Sweetest Place on Earth” and more.

Chocolate is rich in phenolics, the same heart protective antioxidants found in wine. Indulgence? I call it self preservation!
