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.

Apologies if this is miss-posted, as it is news for tea community.
For general/other topics related to tea.
Very sad news I love that documentary, it's a great watch as a tea journey starting point as well as for the experienced!
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.
