I received the following email this morning and wanted to pass it on to the world. A film about bananas? How great would that be?


Thanks for the great blog! I'll be using some of the recipes for the upcoming holidays!!

I'm an independent filmmaker working on a new documentary film about bananas, called CAPTAIN BANANA...

Centered on the life and tropical expeditions of former sea captain and self-taught botanist, Markku Häkkinen, CAPTAIN BANANA celebrates the personal, cultural and environmental significance of bananas. Taking the viewer on a unique journey to Southeast Asian banana festivals, a banana expedition in the mountain forests of China and to the wintery city of Helsinki, the film explores one man’s undying passion for a very misunderstood fruit, and explains why bananas matter to all of us.

If you'd like to learn more about the film, follow it's progress, receive updates, or find out how to support the project, please visit the CAPTAIN BANANA profile on
(please look at the photos from China/Thailand on the "Updates" page)

At the moment, we are looking to spread the word about CAPTAIN BANANA, so that lots of people know that this exciting project is underway and hopefully some might choose to support the film. That's why I'm contacting you - your blog explores all things bananas and it seems like some of your reader may be interested in this documentary project. If the film seems interesting/relevant/worthwhile to you, it would be a huge help if you posted the link or our widget (it can be found on the IndieGoGo page) onto your blog. OR, if you didn't want to do that, but know a couple of banana lovers who might be interested, then please pass this info onto them... Anything helps!!

If you have any questions or would like any more information about the film, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Take care and thanks for your time!

Director/Producer/Editor - CAPTAIN BANANA

Awh! That's so cute! Love bananas! Haha. Like you, I'd love to share this as well to our readers in Foodista. I know you won't mind, right? ;-) Just add the foodista widget for bananas at the end of this post, and that should do it! Thanks, looking forward to your next posts ;-)

Cheers from Australia,
