This is a movie about the land where I live and grew up.
The North Coast Journal, a local alternative periodical is running an article this week about the movie.
What's it about? Humboldt's culture of marijuana horticulture. Everybody here knows someone that makes a living profiting from growing dope. Everybody. The economy here would be worse than it already is if cash from this alternate economy wasn't pumped into it.
Or maybe I'm in denial.
No doubt, this is one more addition to a growing genre. Interest in a Northern California return to nature ebbs and flows. I wonder what will happen when this movie hits theaters. My hope is that it enjoy the kind of attention that cause movies to bypass theaters and go straight to DVD.
