The history of agriculture must have begun approx 10.000 years ago with hemp, also known under its Latin name Cannabis.
Scientists have come to the conclusion from finds made in the area of modern China. In certain ways hemp has influenced the history of humanity and the plant has never been missing in religion, wars and revolutions.
The filming took the German camera team to the south-western French province of „Pays de Loire“, one of the most beautifui cultural and scenic areas and the centre of the com-mercial cultivation of hemp in Europe.
For the first time, one can get an interesting insight into the tradition, cultivation and multiple uses of this „Plant of the Gods“.
