Delicious Peace Grows in a Ugandan Coffee Bean (Uganda, USA, 40 min)
Directed by Curt Fissel
Living in the wake of the Idi Amin reign of terror and institutional discrimination, one Ugandan coffee farmer organized a group of Christian, Muslim and Jewish neighbors to challenge historical — as well as economic and environmental — hurdles by forming Delicious Peace Coffee Cooperative to enhance peaceful relationships and economic development. Partnering with a Fair Trade US distributor, the standard of living of the farmers is improving, peace is flourishing, and their messages of peace and fair wages are spreading to coffee customers in the US. Narrated by Ed O’Neill.
