Most of the documentary was filmed on location in sugar plantations in La Libertad region in the north of Peru. This was shot, handheld, using an iPhone with a Røde VideoMic Me and Filmic Pro software. The introduction, showing sugar added to a cup of tea, was filmed using a Canon 80D and GoPro with Røde Video Mic Pro on camera in both cases. For the narration, a Røde NTG2 was used. In the BTS film, the narration section was recorded using a Røde Link Filmmaker (lavalier) microphone. Both films were processed using Adobe Premiere Pro.
