Cafe Cinema at the Co-op “Bringing it home” Hemp Documentary screening and Lunch Thursday June 5th 12-1:30p.m.

BRINGING IT HOME  Thursday June 5th 12-1:30  WITH LUNCH

More industrial hemp is exported to the U.S. than to any other country and American consumers are purchasing over $450 million in hemp products annually. BRINGING IT HOME explores the question of why a crop with so many widespread benefits cannot be farmed in the United States by illustrating its history, current industries and talking to both opponents and proponents of the industrial hemp farming legalization effort.

BRINGING IT HOME (52 minutes) tells 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.

This movie feature will also include a healthy delicious lunch provided by our creative and health minded Co-op chefs. Please call if you have food related allergies. (507) 650-0106
