Hosted and moderated by Chris Palmer, Director, Center for Environmental Filmmaking, American University.

Washington, D.C. Premiere Living in the lingering wake of the Idi Amin regime of terror and intolerance, Christian, Jewish and Muslim Ugandan coffee farmers challenged historical and economic hurdles by forming the “Delicious Peace” Cooperative. Their mission was to build harmonious relationships and economic development, and they are succeeding. Partnering with a Fair Trade U.S. roaster, the farmers’ standard of living is improving, peace is flourishing, and their messages of peace and fair wages are spreading to their coffee customers in the U.S. Narrated by Ed O’Neill. Directed by Curt Fissel. Produced by Ellen Friedland.
