Jordan Jensen's rating of the film Agave: Spirit of a Nation

This documentary really gave an up close insight into the world of Mexican tequila and mezcal production. The great cinematography portrays the reality of this business in a family that has been doing this work for generations. It is enlightening to see how production looks in other countries compared to the dull, factory production in the United States. The setting of rural Mexico and the people shown are beautiful.
