事關黑金,低調低調

昨天好不容易把掛了近一個星期的BT下載完畢,因為沒有種子,所以流量速度頗慢。不過一切都是值得,這支影片前一陣子才在高雄電影節上映,為了讓錯過電影節活動,又想入門了解公平貿易與咖啡問題的人士有機會看到這支教育記錄片,所以我會把檔案留在電腦一個月,呃,知道我的意思吧,請大家低調分享。


攪動全世界!


Blackgold--corporate coffee trade consequences on ethiopian coffee farmers:
A 2006 documentary about coffee trade centered on its birthplace: highland Ethiopia. The Ethiopian farmers struggle to get a fair price for their crops of high quality coffee, many of them go bankrupt, famine strikes another coffee growing region, lack of money prevents education from spreading.

補註:後來發現它的網站上可以買到原版DVD。
