  • Royal Netherlands Embassy 4200 Linnean Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20008 United States (map)

During the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital,

the world’s premier showcase of environmentally themed films, 

the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands is proud to present: 

 The Chocolate Case

 Directed by: Benthe Forrer

The Chocolate Case follows the incredible journey of three Dutch journalists, who tried to persuade large corporations to end the use of child labor in the chocolate industry, but when rebuffed, decide to take matters into their own hands by creating the world’s first slave-free chocolate bar. Their epic 10 year journey, resulting in the creation of Tony’s Chocolonely, now one of Holland’s leading brands, is beautifully pieced together using archive footage, combined with new material, resulting in an up-tempo, funny, sometimes moving, but overall inspiring film.

After the screening there will be a reception.
