Rated NR · 90 minutes · 2007

Slickly produced protest documentary takes the side of impoverished Haitian sugar cane cutters in the batayes (cane plantations) of the Dominican Republic and their champion, Roman Catholic priest Father Christopher Hartley, who has received death threats for trying to improve working conditions. The threats come from the growers, who exploit other Dominicans' fear and hatred of Haitians. Where do we come in? The US is the island nation's biggest sugar customer. The quiet outrage of filmmaker Bill Haney's message accumulates. Directed by Haney, written by Haney and Peter Rhodes, and narrated by Paul Newman (90 min., 2007).
