NFB Film Night - The Chocolate Farmer - Fri Apr 19

The Mayne Island Library presents a public screening of the NFB new release, “The Chocolate Farmer"

In an unspoiled corner of Belize, cacao farmer and father Eladio Pop manually works his plantation as did his Mayan ancestors, as a steward of the land. The film captures a year in the life of the Pop family as they struggle to preserve their values in a world that is dramatically changing around them. A lament for cultures lost, The Chocolate Farmer challenges our deeply held assumptions of progress.

7:30 PM Friday, April 19, at the Ag Hall

Admission and popcorn by donation
