As a part of the Hayti Film Next Level series, spend a pre-Valentine's Day evening at Hayti to find out about one of the world's oldest guilty pleasures!

Cxffee Black to Africa is a documentary that unearths the origins of the bean that changed the world.

Synopsis:

A teacher-turned-hip-hop artist is on a mission to reclaim a stolen fruit– coffee– from his motherland of Africa. The only thing standing in his way is a 460 billion dollar industry that has profited off of the backs of his ancestors through the slave trade. When Bartholomew Jones is given a chance to travel to Ethiopia and learn about one of the most important commodities of the 21st century, he packs his bags and returns home.

Filmmaker Bartholomew Jones will be in attendance for an after-screening Q+A.

Note: this is a free event with a suggested donation of $5 in support of Hayti Films.
