Stumptown Coffee Roasters has released "Wax & Gold" – a 26-minute short film produced in partnership with Farm League. The film documents their travels to Ethiopia to learn more about its rich history, which serves as the underpinnings for a contemporary cultural tapestry that interweaves the very old and the very new. 

Honoring the birthplace of coffee, and featuring legendary coffee producer Haile Gebre, and jazz icon Mulatu Astatke, it weaves a narrative portrait of Ethiopia through shared histories and traditions. 

Directed by Britton Caillouette of Farm League, "Wax & Gold" is a visual poem evoking a nuanced narrative portrait of this incredible place. Putting form to the tension between history and contemporary life, the film relies on strong, timeless imagery, layered sound design and driving music to create an immersive experience. Britton and his crew shot for twelve days on location, traveling with each individual to capture their daily lives, families and histories interspersed with fast-paced scenes of Ethiopian celebration and ritual.

Stumptown will be hosting public, ticketed screenings of the film in Los Angeles (August 24.) For more information about the screenings and to view the trailer for Wax & Gold, please visit https://www.stumptowncoffee.com/blog/wax-and-gold
