Food trends expert and "supermarket guru" Phil Lempert, Uli Bella of the Grammy winning band Ozomatli, and other special guests will join filmmakers Linda Booker and Blaire Johnson for a Q & A and discussion following the film.
Bringing It Home is a new hour-long documentary film about industrial hemp that explores the question of why a crop with so many widespread benefits cannot be farmed in the U.S. today. The film uncovers the history of hemp, its myriad industrial applications and legalization efforts.
