Filmmaker Brandon Loper traveled the world while developing A Film About Coffee, visiting farms in Rwanda and Honduras. Coffee luminaries James Freeman (Blue Bottle Coffee), Eileen Hassi (Ritual Roasters), and Peter Giuliano (SCAA) are featured in the film. Our event Cupping California at SFMOMA makes a cameo.
Loper says that the response to the film has been strong, with “over 120 screening requests” post-premiere. The team is trying to screen the film as much as possible, with NYC, LA, Chicago, Paris, London, and Tokyo currently in the works. In SF they will be showing at the iconic Castro Theater, and in Portland at the Laurelhurst Theater, one of the most quintessential examples of Portland's funky old theaters where you can drink beers and eat pizza in a screening.
The screenings will feature free coffee from local roasters like Stumptown Coffee, and a post-screening Q&A. Tickets will be $15. You can find show-times and buy tickets here, and watch the trailer for A Film About Coffee below.
