    Blended Success!

    Most of the time social values have nothing in common with business goals. Indeed they should. Able to counter this trend is the story behind the movie Perfume War. Sit back and settle in to your seat at The Park theatre in Vancouver to watch a truly inspirational movie.Based on a true story this motion picture from Loud Baby Productions  shows just how good an independent film can be.

    This documentary shows the special bond of two life long friends and the impact of war on both of them. Some of the nicest and best people in the world come from the Maritimes where we first meet college friends  Barb Stegemann and Trevor Greene. Almost inseparable as friends the pair get separated by war. Always ready to fight injustice commander Greene finds himself doing good in Afghanistan until his tour of duty is cut short by a deadly attack.

    Left largely for dead due to the heinous attack few would give this brave  soldier any chance to survive. Let alone thrive and perhaps even prosper as time goes by. Not willing to give up or shatter Trevor’s dream stand  by your friend Barbara embarks on a one woman crusade to make things better for women in Afghanistan and by extension men as well. Knowing that the root of much evil in this undeveloped  region are poppies and opium this talented altruistic woman embarks on a plan to help cultivate a less damaging crop which will make perfume and according to her make life better for this once thriving nation.

    Using a local farmer somehow Stegemann manages to develop a perfume. Just how she gets the manufacturing process going and penetration into the cut-throat corporate world of the fragrance industry is a textbook David versus Goliath story with local and global inspirations.

    Through conviction and dogged determination we see how a woman with little more than a dream and a heart of gold manages to make a difference in a desperate region as her friend manages to come  back from what most  would see as an almost impossible injury. More than a few tears will  likely be shed at this emotional movie. Most striking of all is that it’s all true.
