It’s time to wake up and smell the imported roses.
Screening with Lessons From the night
Adrian Francis | Australia | 2008 | 9 min
Meet the people who work at least twelve hours a day on vast flower farms in Kenya to supply an insatiable global flower industry. Workers endure oppressive working conditions and few risk their livelihoods to tell their stories, but Dutch director Ton van Zantvoort has found those with the courage to do so. His poetic documentary quietly exposes the corruption, chemicals and hardships hidden behind the supermarket labels.
