wiw vol 47 The Fruit Hunters

2012 - 95 minutes - Documentary
Streaming Netflix


Adventurers, exotic fruits fanatics and even movie star Bill Pullman, are the subjects of The Fruit Hunters, the new film from acclaimed director Yung Chang. A thrilling journey through nature, commerce and adventure, The Fruit Hunters is a cinematic odyssey that takes viewers from the dawn of humanity to the cutting of edge of modern agriculture - a film that will change not just the way we look at we eat, but what it means to be human.

Such a great documentary that follows Bill Pullman as he tries to put together a communal orchard near his home in Hollywood. I love seeing communities come together to try and create something to share.
