About the film
Bringing It Home: Industrial Hemp, Healthy Houses, and a Greener Future for America
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: Why can't a crop with so many widespread benefits be farmed in the United States? Bringing It Home illustrates hemp's history and current industries, and talks to both opponents and proponents of the industrial hemp farming legalization effort.
The film was inspired by environmentally-conscious home designer Anthony Brenner’s story to find the healthiest building material available to build a safe indoor environment for his young daughter Bailey, who has a rare genetic disorder and sensitivity to synthetic chemicals. Anthony made headlines 2010 when he completed “America’s First Hemp House” for the former mayor of Asheville, North Carolina.
Anthony’s story is one of the inspirational tales profiled in this film that provides viewers with a new connection to the issue of toxicity in human habitats and how hemp can play a role in innovative healthy green building solutions.
