Market Basket documentary in the works in Portsmouth

PORTSMOUTH - We all watched it play out over the summer.

A family feud that led to more than a month of Market Basket workers protesting over the loss of the company's CEO Arthur T. Demoulas. Now, a Portsmouth-based documentary film-maker is looking to tell the whole story.

Jay Childs started his documentary about the decades of feuds within the Demoulas family more than a year ago, and when the protests began he followed every minute he could with his camera.

His film is called Food Fight, and it's still in the works. Childs says there are more interviews he wants to include, but says the real stars of the film are the workers.

"They really did put a lot on the line in order to fight for what they believe was a way of life. And I just find that incredibly compelling and it doesn't need actors, you know the real people are always more compelling," Childs said.
