Storyline

Joe Leahy is the half-caste son of one of the first explorers of the Papua New Guinean interior. His relations with the local Ganiga tribe who work his coffee plantation on their land are difficult at times. However he has successfully managed to get them to agree to open a second plantation in partnership with him. Things are looking up until the international coffee market hits rough times and conflict seems imminent between the Ganiga and their neighbouring traditional enemies. Written by Brian Rawnsley <rawnsleb@natlib.govt.nz>

Top Notch!
17 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is possibly the best documentary that I have ever seen. I do not think that the people who made it ever had any idea of how complex their story would end up becoming. And the fact that the camera just happened to be where the action was and filming over at least a five year period is amazing. I do not want to say anymore about the film just that if you can ever get the chance to see it, and you like documentary films, you should really try to see it. From a technical standpoint I am sure that it is not without some flaws, however it ends up being a brilliant and honest commentary on many complex levels of human suffering and greed and even world trade. And I really think that they just thought they were going to make a film about coffee.
