Daun Harapan, or “Leaf of Hope,” dives into kratom’s economic, social, and environmental impacts in Indonesia. The film features interviews with farmers, researchers, exporters, and other industry stakeholders, shedding light into the kratom business’s lesser-known facets.

It offers a hopeful perspective on kratom’s potential to shape Indonesia’s future positively.

The Future of Kratom

What future awaits kratom? Daun Harapan seeks to answer this, providing insights into the challenges and opportunities facing Indonesia’s kratom industry and its people.

There are also some clouds in the tropical skies. As in the rest of the world, unfortuantely, there are also forces in Indonesia who are not convinced of the benefits of kratom and make it harder for the producers and farmers, or trying to outright ban the whole commodity.

This film will hopefully show that it is not the only the people buying kratom that depend on it, so many people in Indonesia also depend on it. So while the reasons might not intertwine on both ends of the supply chain, the interests surely do.
