On July 4th, 2014, U.S. Veteran Michael Lewis flew an American flag at the Capital made of hemp grown on his farm in Kentucky, symbolizing the key role industrial hemp has played in the founding of our country. Federal law currently denies American farmers the right to grow the crop in U.S. soil—this film is working to change that reality. Directed by Dan Malloy and produced in partnership with Fibershed and The Growing Warriors Project, Harvesting Liberty aims to educate society on the immense potential industrial hemp holds for food, feed, fiber, fuel, and families in the United States. You can watch full film from Patagonia here.
