SETTING THE BAR: A CRAFT CHOCOLATE ORIGIN STORY

Q&A with filmmaker Tim Shephard and post-screening chocolate and pisco tasting

With an eye toward ecological sustainability and creating high-grade, premium artisanal chocolate, a small group of craft chocolate makers takes their annual pilgrimage to the forests of Peru to work with local farmers on growing and harvesting the best cacao the land can produce. The stability of these communities depends on the harvest, and economic sustainability is just as important as ecological responsibility. Marking a global resurgence in the craft chocolate world, this intimate look at a group of impassioned workers and enthusiasts is a tale of hope and prosperity, full of beautiful images and personal stories from the artisans making it possible. Official Selection, 2019 Guadalajara International Film Festival. DIR/SCR Tim Shephard; PROD Amy Burns. U.S., 2019, color, 84 min. In English and Spanish with English subtitles. NOT RATED
