The Village Hub

This is a fascinating documentary about a sustainability project that Willie Smits and the Masarang Foundation designed for rural Indonesia.

Smits designed a process for harvesting the sap of sugar palm trees on a “village scale” that also produces useable bi-products. Brilliant.

The entire factory can be broken down and fit into two shipping containers and transported by truck and ship. Wow.

Film by Raymond Hartman and Bureau Beeldtaal Filmmakers.
