Fairtrade Film Screening: Connected by Coffee

Tuesday, 28 February 2017 - 8:00pm
 
A special film screening organised by Preston and South Ribble Fairtrade Group
 
"An eye-opening behind-the-scenes look at the real world of coffee…Highly recommended.” Video Librarian Magazine
 
Connected By Coffee is an inspiring and thought-provoking documentary about the lives and history of the people who grow the coffee we drink.
 
The film follows two North American coffee roasters on a 1,000-mile journey across Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua to listen to the stories of the people who grow their coffee. On the way they meet with soldiers who have become growers, powerful women who are controlling their own destinies and countless small-scale farmers joining together to form cooperatives.
 
 
This film serves as a starting point to educate coffee drinkers about the basics of fair trade, cooperatives, social justice, shade grown/organic, the conflict in fair trade, coffee rust – AND invites the viewer to not only make conscious purchasing decisions, but to learn more, get involved, and take action.
 
Created by Aaron Dennis and Chelsea Bay Dennis of Stone Hut Studios.
 
CONNECTED BY COFFEE is screened at The Continental on Tuesday 28th February 2017. Doors open at 8pm 
 
Tickets are £5, either in advance or on the door.
 
 
In person from The Continental's bar (01772 499 425)
