EFS-BlackGoldThis film traces the tangled trail from the two billion cups of coffee consumed each day back to the coffee farmers who produce the beans. This year’s Ethics Film Series connects with a series of programming at the Institute focused on food, culture and ethics. The four films and one documentary series chosen reflect different ways in which visual narratives can help unearth the ways in which preparing and eating food brings us closer to one another.

Join us for a coffee flavor and brewing demonstration with Counter Culture Coffee at 6:30pm in the lobby of Griffith Theater!

The screening will begin at 7:00pm in the Griffith Film Theater in Duke University’s Bryan Center. Stay after for a Q&A with Counter Culture’s Timothy Hill (head of coffee) and Meredith Taylor (sustainability manager), joined by  Claire Fox,  a Master of Forestry and Environment Management student at the Nicholas School of the Environment. Fox has worked on resiliency and issues facing smallholder coffee farmers as they adapt to climate change in partnership with Counter Culture.

The screenings are free and open to the public. Refreshments are provided.

Parking is available in the Bryan Center Parking Deck. Upon leaving the film, you may receive a voucher to hand to the attendant.

Presented with Duke’s Screen/Society, the Center for Documentary Studies, Artstigators, and the Arts of the Moving Image Program. This screening is co-sponsored by Ethiopian Community Organization of North Carolina.
