Bringing It Home

Industrial Hemp is making headlines in American media with the 2018 Farm Bill removing hemp from the Controlled Substances Act, allowing state departments of agriculture to regulate hemp cultivation.
But for decades hemp has been conflated with marijuana and now with booming CBD markets taking over hemp headlines, consumers need to know the potential for other products like hempcrete and bioplastics that can help with climate change. BRINGING IT HOME tells the story of hemp's past, present and future through interviews with global hemp business leaders and entrepreneurs, animation and footage filmed in Europe and the United States.
This film makes the case for all the benefits of a plant that will leave viewers wondering: why aren't we using it more for a healthier planet?
