Yerba brava

From Messi to Obama, the Pope and “Che” Guevara, everyone makes up the culture of mate and yerba. Yerba brava is a testimonial, apocryphal documentary that tells the story of the myth of a yerba mate with alleged “superpowers” and how powerful spheres of society attempt to appropriate it and exploit it.
