The path from the coffee plant to the coffee mug is often a shocking one, and this bold documentary doesn’t avert its gaze from any of the horror. BLACK COFFEE, a provocative dissection of the drink’s history and its continuing effects on society, exposes the dark undercurrents of the economic exploitation that has helped make coffee one of the world’s most popular beverages. Do you know what you’re drinking?

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 society’s most essential drink, mass production would pave the way for subjugation and oppressive barriers that desperately needed to be broken.

From coffee’s production to its commercial distribution and the capitalization that follows, Black Coffee documents the culture and the counterculture forged by the world’s favorite drink.
