About the Movie
Hugh Jackman (X-MEN’s “Wolverine”) flies to Ethiopia as part of World Vision’s initiative to bring attention to their success in raising people out of poverty. Hugh spends an entire day in the fields with a coffee grower named Dukale who is working hard to lift his family out of poverty. Spending time on Dukale's farm, Hugh learned first-hand about the value of fair trade coffee. Upon returning to New York, Hugh was invited to speak at UN Climate Week where he made an impassioned plea to world leaders to provide support for farmers like Dukale, noting something as simple as a cup of coffee had the power to reduce global poverty. Hugh was so inspired by Dukale, he launched Laughing Man Coffee, trading directly with the growers and donating 100% of the profit to support community development programs and social entrepreneurs around the world.1
Really beautiful work, and a must-see. Congratulations to Hugh, the film makers and all involved. Very compelling on a number of levels, and especially so to have such a passionate, high profile advocate as Hugh focused on such a productive, inspiring, and worthy cause.
Such a compelling story, completely engaging, stunningly beautiful. It was awe inspiring to see how World Vision’s community development program concomitantly addressed economic development, environmental protection, health, and education, with the certain result of a brighter future for one’s children. The methane converter providing bio-gas reducing deforestation preventing a home poisoned with suffocating wood smoke AND cleaning up after the cows—nothing in my life is that efficiently organized. I learned so much from Dukale’s ambition and Jackman’s relentless self-encouragement when the more he had just done was not enough. I’m now even more of a Laughing Man-Tap Dancing-Wolverine fan. Please watch this one, it is so very worth your time.
Reap what you sow!
Dukale's Dream will wake you up! This is a beautiful, inspiring story! This film allows us a glimpse into the crazy background magic happening in all our lives- those seemingly unknown positive forces that are at work and building up as we struggle and think nothing will come of our efforts to bring about needed change. This is truly a feel good message for those who are out there persevering. Indeed, you never know what you are gonna wake up to. Love it!
