Food Chains exposes the injustice embedded in America’s agriculture and food production industries. This hard hitting documentary sheds light on the wage theft, physical abuse, and near slavery that constitutes everyday life for thousands of America’s mostly-Latino farm workers. Food Chains gives a voice to those fighting to change these practices, and bring justice to the table. Eva Longoria is the Executive Producer.
Sanjay Rawal’s experience running a small agricultural genetics company led to work as a consultant on the hit documentary Pray the Devil Back to Hell (2008). Since then, he has gone on to produce award-winning shorts and films. Food Chains is his first feature.
