Vance-Granville Community College invites the public to learn about the state’s new Industrial Hemp Program through movie screenings and discussions, organized with the NC Industrial Hemp Association. The free “Dinner and a Movie” events includes the film, Bringing it Home.
The Bringing it Home documentary, by NC’s own Linda Booker and Blaire Johnson, “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 UK, Spain, Washington DC, 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.” More information on this documentary may be found at bringingithomemovie.com/the-film.
