I just liked “BRINGING IT HOME – work in progress” on Vimeo: vimeo.com/36166278

“This is a work-in-progress section from BRINGING IT HOME, a documentary currently in production. In this sequence we meet home designer Anthony Brenner, whose mission is to build healthy, toxin-free homes for his clients. Inspired by his young daughter with multiple chemical sensitivities, his quest led him to build “America’s First Hemp House” in Asheville, NC, using hempcrete which must be imported. Industrial hemp walls are breathable, carbon-negative, non-toxic, mold-pest and flame-resistant, and can help cut energy bills in half. The one drawback–the U.S. prohibits farming industrial hemp, the non-psychoactive cannabis sativa plant that 31 other nations grow. We also meet other industrial hemp builders and industry leaders at the 2nd Annual International Hemp Building Symposium in Spain, and learn how retrofitting with industrial hemp materials could as a sustainable building material, create 1,000s of jobs in the U.S. and make healthy homes affordable for all. We also follow Brenner as he visits the future site of The Bird’s Nest, his dream of a hemp-built group home where his disabled daughter and other children with similar challenges can live and grow in a 100% chemical free environment.”
