The world’s most versatile plant… used for something entirely unexpected.
Follow Montreal filmmaker, photographer and hemp-lover Ezra Soiferman, aka “Ez”, on a ‘philhempthropic’ journey (started in 2007) to get functional and nutritious hemp products into the hands of those who need them most.
Join Ez and the Hemp for the Homeless team in this out-of-left-field doc as they distribute hemp tote bags (‘Hemp Help Kits’) filled with planet-friendly hemp goods to homeless organizations and folks living without fixed addresses.
A 25+ year hemp devotee and advocate, Ezra doesn’t just wear only hemp every day and eat hemp seeds atop every meal, his whole philosophy of life is ‘hemp-to-toe’. He created this project to show that more than just being a superfood and an incredibly versatile plant, hemp can also bring hope.
Get hempified with Ez and friends in this inspiring and heartwarming short documentary filmed with love in Montreal and Colorado.
