In honor of the 40th Earth Day celebration, the 5000 year old Khmu culture links the modern world to its reusable, sustainable, stretchable, homemade bag, amazingly made from wild-growing JungleVine™. Privately funded poverty reduction project turns an ancient tool into a superior organic carrying device for modern green living. Insightful camerawork and brilliant editing by a professional volunteer capture mountainside living in breathtaking Northern Laos The attractive Khmu ethnic group is featured. Some live without money surviving by gathering food, medicine and fiber high in remote mountain forests, which is the reason for the sturdy bags. Using hands and a leg to transform JungleVine™ fiber into super-strong cord is the highlight of the story. Much of the bag making was captured at a performance by Khmu women wearing traditional festival clothing. Co-starring are charming children and village animals. In addition to the bag making, actual use of the bags is shown in Laotian scenes intermixed with images captured in North American and Europe.
