Coffee is surpassed only by oil as the most actively traded commodity in the world. But for every $3 cup of coffee, a farmer receives only 3 cents. Tracing the path of your morning cup to the farmers who produce the beans, the new documentary BLACK GOLD asks us each to "wake up and smell the coffee."
BLACK GOLD provides the most in-depth study of any commodity on film today and offers a compelling introduction to the "fair trade" movement galvanizing consumers around the globe.
