This short film is dedicated to Sophie’s Dad, Nick, who will forever be her greatest supporter.
Starring: Nat & Ben Thomas
Banana Blossom founders Nat and Ben Thomas love to sweat it out at the gym - nearly as much as they love to have people sweat over their triple chilli sauce. This is the story that traces back the source of this 100 year old family recipe know as the “elixir of life”. A recipe that didn’t come from a book, it was handed down over generations through the generous heart of Nat’s Grandmother, Yai.

PASOLA - A SPORTING RITUAL
Starring: the people of Sumba
For thousands of years, humans have taken to sporting battlefields. Often, whether we win or lose, we leave the battlefield bloody and bruised.

This film explores the answer to this question through the sporting ritual of “Pasola”, in the remote island region of Sumba, Indonesia.
