ABOUT THE FILM

A farm spread out deep in the mountains surrounded by the greenery of Papua New Guinia. Taking its subject on the cultivation of coffee beans and the lifestyles of the poeple engaged in the cofee-bean farming, the film depicts the local circumstances together with the voices of farmers, the local society, and the consumers. A must-see for a coffee-lover!

Nice ! The film depicts the process and the hard work of organic coffee growers very concretely.

Quite an eye-opening film for me. I felt that we have to appreciate growers\' hard work, and make fair-trade help their lives more and more to make better products for buyers.

I thought we should pay more attention to the hard work by the growers. This film makes us be more serious about fair-trade. I hope the system will be nicer to both the buyers and the growers in the near future.

色々と勉強させられる映画です。フェア・トレードへの期待は、消費者からだけでなく、生産者側からも高まっているのですね。双方にとってより良い方向に道が拓けていく事を願います。

I'm a frequent fair-trade user, but I didn't know or even think about the products' producers. This film shows us their actual circumstances. Next time when I use fair-trade, I'll think about them for sure. Thanks for an eye-opening film !

フェアトレードがほんとうになされているのか、言葉として流行っていて売れているだけでなく、ちゃんとなされているのか心配になることがあります。コーヒーに限らず何かを購入するとき、産地のことを考えてみなければいけないですね。
