This is the trailer for the new industrial hemp documentary BRINGING IT HOME (52 minutes), telling the story of hemp’s past, present and future through interviews with hemp business leaders and entrepreneurs from all over the globe, historical images and media clips, and footage filmed in the U.K, Spain, Washington D.C., California and North Carolina. The documentary aims to magnify dialogue about hemp in order to facilitate America’s transition to a more informed, sustainable, and healthy future.
The film was inspired by environmentally-conscious home designer Anthony Brenner’s story to find the healthiest building material available to build a safe indoor environment for his young daughter Bailey, who has a rare genetic disorder and sensitivity to synthetic chemicals. Anthony made headlines in USA Today and CNN when he completed “America’s First Hemp House” for the former mayor of Asheville, North Carolina. Anthony’s story is one of the inspirational tales profiled in this film that provides viewers with a new connection to the issue of toxicity in human habitats and how hemp can play a role in innovative healthy green building solutions. In Bringing it Home, we follow Anthony’s mission to build The Bird’s Nest, the world’s first hempcrete built, toxin-free residential home for his daughter and other children and adults with disabilities.
Hemp is a misunderstood plant with compelling benefits for healthy homes, food, farmers, job creation and our environment. Industrial hemp is non-psychoactive and grown in thirty other nations but currently U.S. farmers are prohibited from this economic opportunity. In the new documentary BRINGING IT HOME, filmmakers Linda Booker and Blaire Johnson animate hemp’s history and introduce us to business owners using industrial hemp for construction, textiles, nutrition, and body care products in the United States and around the globe. BRINGING IT HOME explores “Why aren’t we growing it here?” and the latest effort by advocates to legalize hemp farming in America. Learn more, support, sign up for news at bringingithomemovie.com
