If you have not seen the marijuana documentary, Evergreen: The Road to Legalization, you still have time. But, don’t wait too long as the final showing at the Seattle International Film Festival, on July 3rd.
‘Evergreen’ is an excellent film which gives a non-biased view on the legalization battle between the those for and agains I-502. Towards the end of the film, the un biased view became a little lopsided – but not to the fault of the filmmakers – as the ‘No on I-502’ party declined to be filmed anymore.
Alison Holcomb and her efforts and dedication for I-502 took center stage and left a memorable impression; as did travel writer Rick Steves and former U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Washington, John McKay. Steve Sarich, had a prominent role in the documentary, leading the opposition against I-502.
The marijuana legalization documentary does a really good job of presenting both views and arguments. In addition, the pacing of the film was superb. Do you enjoy watching documentaries, interested in marijuana legalization and/or a resident of Washington State? If so, this is a must watch film.
If you were one of the lucky ones to view the film on Friday, you were invited to a special after party at the PDA Lounge marijuana dispensary in Belltown. A group of approximately 40 ticket holders showed up to meet and greet the filmmakers and to hang out in the back of the lounge. Not only do these filmmakers know how to make a fabulous documentary, but they know how to party!
