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

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

    Director Michael Allcock
    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 who make organic chocolate at their farm in Haliburton, Ont.; of employees who live and work in Hershey, Pa., known as “The Sweetest Place on Earth”; of Parisian high-end chocolatier Patrick Roger; and of individuals from Burkina Faso and Mali who’ve been lured to work in cacao plantations in neighbouring Ivory Coast.

    As Mr. Allcock tells The Globe, chocolate means very different things to different people.

    When veteran 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. Why not, she thought, create a mobile ap that directs users to the best places to source chocolate in first Ontario cities and eventually cities around the world? Ergo, the genesis of "Choco-locate," the mobile ap Krishna's film company, In Sync Media, produced in conjunction with her new film. #ChocolateCandy

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