First official trailer of Market Basket tell-all documentary now online -
FOOD FIGHT – Inside the Battle for Market Basket
Portsmouth, NH – One year ago this week, one of the most unusual battles in American corporate history started in Tewksbury Massachusetts when the board of directors of a supermarket chain fired its long time, much beloved CEO. While much of New England watched the revolt by workers and customers play out in headlines and on newscasts throughout the summer of 2014, Jay Childs had a unique view of the drama. The Portsmouth NH-based documentary filmmaker spent the summer behind the lens of his camera, following the twists and turns, the hopes and frustration, the anger and passion of thousands of workers, and the loyalty of millions of customers. They were all rallying to bring back Arthur T. Demoulas, the CEO who had been ousted by his cousin Arthur S. Demoulas after decades of legal battles between different factions of the family. Childs, of JBC Film Group, together with producing partner Melissa Paly of CrossCurrent Communications, is now turning all that emotion and footage into a documentary film called FOOD FIGHT – Inside the Battle for Market Basket. A trailer for film has just been released at www.foodfightfilm.com.
