Reginald Ekong's rating of the film Agave: Spirit of a Nation

A very enlightening Documentary that sets its cultural and historical tone from the onset, Nick Kovacic and Matthew Riggieri shared the history of agave which is used to make mezcal and tequila. The documentary allows us to explore many places home to agave in Mexico, The explorations of these places added to this movie but seemed to be a weakness of it as the jump from location-to-location was overwhelming at times
