By The Afro News Reporter Ariadne Sawyer.
The film A Blooming Business, recently shown at the Vancouver International film paints a picture of poetic imagery while portraying a hard look at the greed of multinational companies who run the vast flower plantations around Lake Naivasha in Kenya. Workers such as Jane who works 16 hours per day for little money, in toxic conditions. Shown also is the economic desperation that drives the lives of the people who work and live there. Highlighting a Blooming Business is the graceful dignity of those who work hard and are barely able to survive. Their major goal is to make a decent living. Directed and produced by Ton Van Zabtvoort, with music by Roy Bemelmans, A Blooming Business reminds us of the exploitation by large companies around the world who are only interested in the bottom line and profits. They then charge high prices to consumers and announce huge increases for their stockholders.
Next time, I buy flowers, I will ask where they come from…
