Les Blank has sadly passed away. He directed the documentary film 'All in This Tea' that profiled David Lee Hoffman traveling through remote tea growing areas of China. A film worth seeing.

I also really enjoyed the documentary. My favorite part was probably the discussion/arguments Hoffman had with the Chinese bureaucrats. Sorry to hear about Les Blank's passing. Just another reason why one should try to value every day of their life.
