Fortunately, independent production company Thuristar have created this minute long animation which deals with this serious subject through the angle of comedy.
The film shows the trials and tribulations of a small producer of coffee, from planting, cultivation and cropping all the way through to delivery. It highlights in a quite peculiarly funny way what faces the small producer when they are in opposition to large, uncaring global businesses. All deadly serious stuff - but this will make you laugh.
This short animation was the winner of the BeFair competition in 2009 andd has been shown at a number of international festivals since then in Italy, Germany, France and Korea among others. Thuristar was created in 2008 and is the brainchild of Joeri Christiaen, a Belgium based animator, author and director.
