For the Love of Thyme – Six-minute film documentary on sustainability and cultivation of the wild zaatar herb in Lebanon
The film was produced for a cultural and heritage of Lebanon exhibition by a gifted producer Nay Aoun. It brings Lebanon beyond the cities to life in a way we don't often see. In the context of protecting the land and the zaatar herb plant (wild thyme), it’s a story of enterprising, faith, love, and beauty of people and the region. It also touches on tangled conflicts in the Middle East and particularly Lebanon and contains personal perspectives.
Mr. Neimeh is the director of the Zaatar Zawtar Agricultural Cooperative in South of Lebanon. Tyme Foods LLC is the exclusive distributor for the cooperative in North America.
