The trailer for Candyman: The David Klein Story which will make its Canadian Premiere at the 2010 Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival.

David Klein still believes you only need to be a genius for 15 minutes in order to be successful. This eccentric candy inventor’s once-in-a-lifetime epiphany came in 1976 with the idea for Jelly Belly jellybeans. The gourmet candy with realistic flavours revolutionized the industry and became a pop culture phenomenon. Jelly Belly has grown into a billion-dollar enterprise, but David’s unusual business decisions and shocking displays of altruism have left him deliberately erased from the company’s history with just a fraction of his potential earnings. Sweet and surprising, Candyman is a cautionary tale about a man who had to choose between a big idea and a bigger heart.
