Price of Sugar, The
Source: Catholic News Service
Worthy documentary that recounts the struggle of a Catholic missionary to gain basic social and economic rights for Haitian workers exploited by the sugar industry in the Dominican Republic. Directed by Bill Haney and narrated by Paul Newman, the film provides a harrowing and unsettling look at slavery-like labor conditions in the contemporary Caribbean, but also celebrates the good that can spring from one individual's deep religious commitment and from well organized, nonviolent methods of mass resistance. Graphic depictions of disease, children and adolescents bathing. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. Not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America.
