THE FRUIT HUNTERS OPENS!

Hey Canadians! Don’t forget: Yung Chang’s gorgeous new documentary The Fruit Hunters opens today in Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver. (And check out this review of the film over at the Montreal Gazette!) (And for more photos of these cuties, click over to Adam’s blog).

FILMING FRUIT HUNTERS

Our good friend Yung Chang is in the midst of making a documentary film adaptation of Adam’s first book, and he’s been incredibly busy traveling around the world and eating delicious exotic fruits. (Tough job, but someone has to do it!) Yung also shot in Montreal for one short week, so we made a visit to the set and checked everything out. It was so exciting! Yung’s crew had converted a gigantic warehouse in Lasalle into a lush, tropical rainforest. (There was even a mist machine to create humidity and fog!) It was so incredible to watch Yung hard at work, and also to see Adam’s book transformed into vivid, dynamic images. The afternoon we were there, Yung was  shooting a scene of a proto-human encountering fruit for the first time. It was out of control. If the rest of Yung’s film is nearly as insane, it’s going to be the best documentary of all time.
