... inspired by what they had previously heard about Pelindaba Lavender and in particular our community focus — a core interest of theirs — LifePrints Video came to visit us for a week. With authenticity and spontaneity in mind, the material they used came solely from their unscripted interviews of us as well as several others in our island community. We were naturally delighted with what they presented to us.”
