Is the Florida sugar industry suppressing documentaries about its labor practices? It would appear so. The Women’s Film Festival canceled a screening of Sugar Babies it “would create controversy and endanger [their] funding” and the Miami Film Festival has dropped the movie as well. See an older documentary here.

Great documentary about the sugar industry. Stuff about Florida is mixed in throughout, though the fucked up Haiti/Dominican Republic situation steals the show. Update: The link is fixed.
