Our Common Roots - A Film, Unveiling Our Global Traditions of Healing With Plants

Our Common Roots, feature educational documentary, presents a deep look into medicinal plants and herbs in our environment. It carries the audience into the habitats of the plants and shares the enduring traditions they hold throughout the world.

Our goal in creating the film was to record with a cinematic feel, the qualities and properties of these plants so their healing purpose can be used for years to come. Further though, we feel the herbalist’s role is not only in healing, but insuring the protection of the environment where so many of these medicines are still collected. Encouraging people to collect and study the plants will build an alliance for protecting the forests in which they originate; for without the wild, we can forever risk losing a great source of our healing allies.

“This is one of the few films I have seen that truly gives a sense of the magic of the human gathering of wild plant medicines. It captures the essence of the human relationship with plants, of our need of them, of their grace, and of their healing. I recommend it very highly.”
- Stephen Harrod Buhner, author of The Secret Teachings of Plants and Ensouling Language.
