OCDF 2019: TASTE OF HOPE

Dir: Laura Coppens
Switzerland / Germany / 2019 / 70mins

Is there a viable alternative for commerce to that offered by capitalism? Taste of Hope offers one possibility in the form of a tea factory in France owned by a workers’ collective.

After spending years struggling to gain control from Unilever, they now face a new challenge as their idealism clashes with the harsh realities of the market.

An elegantly crafted observational film, Laura Coppens’ attentive anthropological feature guides us through the factory floor into general assemblies and out into the supermarket, as the collective try to reconcile their utopian vision of communal existence with the ever present stress of the bottom line.

Supported by the Embassy of Switzerland in the UK

This screening will be followed by a director Q&A.
