“FRENCHY DREAMS OF HASHISH” ~ A love letter to the small cannabis farmers of the Emerald Triangle and to the great cannabis community.’
On Sunday, August 21, 2022, at UCLA’s James Bridge Memorial Theater, a new documentary film ‘Frenchy Dreams of Hashish,’ will be screened in support of the non-profit, Frenchy Cannoli Foundation. Proudly co-hosted by West Coast Cure, the film highlights Frenchy’s unbridled passion for great sun-grown cannabis and top-shelf hash. And, more importantly, it emphasizes the value of supporting the ethos of small farms with sustainable eco-friendly practices, while exposing the dark underbelly of corporate cannabis production.
Frenchy Dreams of Small Farms!
Produced by famed cannabis activist and Frenchy’s widow, Kimberly Hooks, the documentary underscores the importance of supporting compliant boutique farms that are dedicated to cultivating sun-grown cannabis responsibly. Directed by Jack Remington, the documentary takes place over the past three years, during which time California’s cannabis industry experienced an influx of new taxes, stricter regulations, and systemic pressure from corporate influences on the small-scale farmer.
A cautionary tale of corporate marijuana farming interest run amok during the infancy of legalization, Remington poignantly noted. “During filming, California’s cannabis industry experienced waves of change that negatively affected and threatened the livelihood of the small farmers Frenchy worked with. This maelstrom of bureaucracy and hypocrisy forms the context of the film in which Frenchy and the farmers fight for quality — and survival.”
