Lavazza ‘Coffee Defenders’ FMCG Lavazza Italy
Lavazza wanted to communicate their commitment to sustainability, supporting coffee growers in developing countries, and women empowerment.
“Coffee Defenders: A Path from Coca to Coffee” is a docufilm that highlights the journey of Johana, a Colombian coffee farmer, and Alexandra, an award-winning reporter, as they make their way from Colombia to Costa Rica.
Together, they bring one of Johana’s coffee seedlings to one of the most important coffee collections in the world, where it will live forever as a symbol of rebirth on behalf of her entire region.
The film, a 30 minute long documentary directed by Oscar Ruiz Navia, one of the best-known voices in contemporary Colombian cinema, was launched on World Environment Day (June 5th) on Amazon Prime Video, available in the UK, the USA, Italy and Germany.
