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.

The film makes the case for all the benefits of a misunderstood plant that will leave viewers wondering: why aren't we growing it here?

"A brilliantly executed documentary that weaves a touching narrative extolling the many benefits of industrial hemp for the environment and human health, while illuminating the obstacles to what could be a thriving industry for U.S. farmers to tap into."
Eric Steenstra, President of Vote Hemp, Executive Director of Hemp Industries Association

"An extremely well done documentary with very good educational value...makes a strong case why we should start growing industrial hemp."
Anil Netravali, Professor of Fiber Science, Cornell University

"Humorous, educational, and at times, infuriating. The infuriating part has nothing to do with the film itself, but what Booker and Johnson are documenting. The 1970 federal Controlled Substances Act made growing hemp illegal."
The Herald-Sun

"After viewing the film one cannot help but become excited about the economic benefits the US would obtain by allowing the production of industrial hemp. Let’s let people pull themselves up by their own hemp straps!"
Dr. Brian Strow, Associate Professor of Economics, Western Kentucky University
