Food Chains Documentary

Producers of Eva Longoria’s farmworker documentary “Food Chains” have created a Spanish-language version of the film that will be released simultaneously with the English version.

The Spanish-language version is voiced by “The Bridge” actors Demian Bichir and Alma Martinez and broadcast journalist Jose Ronstadt.

Screen Media is handling the release of both versions on Nov. 21. The Spanish-language version has secured bookings at Maya Cinemas in several cities and will be available on iTunes starting Nov 21. The English version will be released on VOD on Nov. 27.

Screen Media acquired North American rights following “Food Chains’” premiere at the Berlin Film Festival.

“Food Chains” stars Longoria and includes interviews with exec producer Eric Schlosser, Dolores Huerta, Barry Estabrook, Kerry Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. The film is set in southern Florida, where a group of farm workers battles the global supermarket industry. It also explores the need for  awareness of where food comes from and who harvests it.

“Food Chains” is directed by Sanjay Rawal and produced by Smriti Keshari, Rawal and Hamilton Fish. Besides Longoria and Schlosser, exec producers are Lekha Singh, David Damian Figueroa, Bob Leary, Alfonso Montiel, Roberto Gonzalez Barrera and Alisa Swidler.
