Synopsis

In a remote village in Mexico, Jorge’s family consisting of three generations lives impoverished yet peaceful life, upholding their traditional lifestyle. Coffee is an ethnographic documentary that portrays the life and culture found in the village by focusing on the family’s everyday life. The family experiences three major changes.

Jorge’s father passes away. Jorge, the eldest son, becomes the first lawyer in the region after studying law at university. His 16-year-old sister gets pregnant. The family members generally discuss these things while they go about their daily routine around the house, and their voices are always kept low, whether their conversation is about a good or bad topic. At times, the film’s camera gets close up on the family to deliver their most intimate moments. At other times, the regional culture is observed from a distance. Above all, the calm and peaceful rhythm of Coffee is the best way to illustrate the equally tranquil rhythm of the villagers and their culture. Behind this choice lies the director’s sympathy and respect towards the film’s subjects. (BYUN Sung-chan)​
