BRINGING IT HOME (52 minutes filmed in high definition)
Industrial hemp is a non-psychoactive plant, grown in 30 other countries, but prohibited in the United States. Legalization advocates say it could help American farmers, create jobs and replace thousands of harmful petrochemical and synthetic products.
BRINGING IT HOME explores the question "Why aren't we growing it here?" while discussing hemp's past, present and future with business owners using it for construction, textiles, nutrition, soaps and bio-plastics in America and abroad.
Join us Sunday, November 09, 12:30 to 3:00 p.m. at The Ojai Art Center theater for the film screening followed by a conversation with the filmmaker, Linda Booker, and a panel of distinguished professionals and activists.
There will also be hemp product samples and displays on hand.
Tickets are $10.00 each and available through the Ojai Film Festival website.
Entry is on a first come, first serve basis.
With only 120 seats, we recommend coming early.
