The Price of Sugar Photos

Movie Info

In 1997, appalled by the plight of the up to 20,000 Haitians annually lured into laboring for low wages on sugar plantations in the Dominican Republic, Catholic priest Christopher Hartley begins advocating to improve their working conditions. As a missionary in a rural parish, Hartley offers medical care and organizes a strike. His efforts anger the wealthy plantation owners, who stoke the Dominicans' hatred against the Haitians they feel are taking their jobs.

  • Price of Sugar is designed to educate, outrage and finally spur viewers to action. That it does so with vibrant visual style and an engaging narrative makes it that rare consciousness-raising film that's not only good for you, but a joy to watch.

    November 15, 2007 | Full Review…
  • It's been conceived and executed as an instrument of human rights and a tool of shame. But it's the political controversy that's at the heart of this movie -- the contempt that one poor country feels toward its somewhat poorer neighbor.

    November 9, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • In this compelling documentary, narrated by Paul Newman, Hartley comes off as a man of intense will, and he needs to be.

    November 2, 2007 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Haney doesn't strive for balance, and he doesn't have to; the images speak for themselves.
