Delicious Peace To Screen At NJ Film Festival

Catch “Delicious Peace Grows In A Ugandan Coffee Bean,” a documentary produced by Baristaville’s Ellen Friedland, at the New Jersey Film Festival this Sunday (10/10), 7 p.m., at Rutgers, New Brunswick, Voorhees Hall, Room 105. Delicious Peace tells the story of a coffee cooperative of interfaith (Christian, Jewish and Muslim) Ugandan farmers who put their differences aside to build peace and economic development. By partnering with a Fair Trade buyer, their dreams are beginning to materialize. The film won Best Documentary at the Bronzeville Film Festival in Chicago and was an Official Selection at the Breckenridge Film Festival, Dallas VideoFest, the Cincinnati Film Festival, and the New Jersey Film Festival. It’s also an Official Selection at several upcoming festivals, including the United Nations Association Film Festival (in Palo Alto, CA) and the Redemptive Film Festival (in Virginia Beach). More about the film here. You can also taste Delicious Peace with a gift set ($32) containing the documentary, narrated by Ed O’Neill, and a 12 oz. package of coffee produced by the farmers featured in the documentary. Pick up this fair trade gift at Terra Tea Salon in Montclair and enjoy coffee grown in the rich, hilly soil of an ancient volcano that is today’s Mt. Elgon and the feel-good after effects of a purchase that helps ensure self-sustenance, economic development and harmonious relationships amongst the farmers who produce it. Coffee, ($12 for 12 oz. bag) and documentary ($25) can also be purchased separately.
