Yesterday’s screening on the University of Oregon’s campus was really special for me. After traveling up to Lakewood so many times to work on the documentary, it was great to have some of the Coffee Strong crowd make their way down to my world. I was moved by how many of my friends, colleagues, and students came to the event. I’ve received lots of great comments from people thanking me for educating them about something they didn’t know much about and especially for the opportunity to get to know some of the Coffee Strong folks both through the movie and in person. Those of us involved in the project left the event energized and ready for the next show! Hopefully some folks who do future screenings will be inspired to bring a small group out for a Q&A.
Thanks to everyone who came, and I hope you’ll help spread the word about the next Eugene screening on June 9 at 7 pm at the Bijou.
