- Birdsong & coffee a wake up call /
- "What is the connection between coffee farmers, birds and ourselves? Why are 25 million coffee farmers impoverished while we spend more for our coffee? Why are North American songbirds becoming harder and harder to find? What is the difference between Free Trade and Fair Trade? This film explores the answers to these questions and many more. We hear from experts and students, from coffee lovers and bird lovers. But most importantly, we hear from the coffee farmers themselves and learn how their lives and ours are inextricably joined in ways that we need to understand."--container
