Exploring the dark, rich world of coffee
The Cola Conquest filmmaker Irene Angelico is back to investigate the java equivalent of beverage corruption with Black Coffee, a documentary that explores the dark side of dark roast, light roast and everything in between.
Black Coffee examines the impact of the potent bean throughout history. Sparking social, economic and even sexual strife, coffee consumption became not only a status symbol of social class, but a patriotic duty in colonial America. As brilliant marketing campaigns branded coffee societys most essential drink, mass production would pave the way for subjugation and oppressive barriers that desperately needed to be broken.
From coffees production to its commercial distribution and the capitalization that follows, Black Coffee documents the culture and the counterculture forged by the worlds favorite drink.
