Black Gold coffee documentary trailer online

BlackGold.jpgBlack Gold is a documentary about the global coffee trade, looking at the coffee makers and the chain of companies involved in bringing it to your cup. Despite the so called Fair Trade, it still sounds as though those at the far end of the production are the ones suffering.

I've managed to get the trailer right here for you to have a look at, and once you've done that you might want to have a look at the official site, which has an interesting calculator showing how much you are actually giving to the different companies involved when you buy a cup of coffee. What's frightening is when you see how much a grower makes a year.

Here's the official blurb for Black Gold:

Black Gold is a powerful documentary which follows the mission of one man - Tadesse Meskela - General Manager of the Oromia Coffee Farmers Co-operative Union, as he battles to save his 74,000 struggling coffee farmers from bankruptcy. As his farmers strive to harvest some of the highest quality coffee beans on the International market, Tadesse travels the world in an attempt to find buyers willing to pay a fair price.

Here's the trailer in various formats and sizes along with a link to all the screenings.
