No two leaves are alike and yet there is no antagonism between them or between the branches on which they grow.
— M. K. Ghandi

The Story

Gender equity involves all of us. It affects us in our daily lives and takes on different meaning depending upon our country, our culture, our jobs and our different expression of gender. What does gender equity mean for a coffee family, a roaster or a coffee drinker? How do we relate to and connect with one another around the same passion for coffee? 

This film opens the conversation about gender roles, women's empowerment, masculinity, women’s coffee and the importance of working towards gender equality for the sustainability of the coffee industry.

Filmed between January and March 2018, from Mexico to the United States we followed the story of women and men involved in the production, transformation and consumption of coffee.
