From nightly news stories on medical marijuana legislation to hit films like Pineapple Express, whether you like it or not, pot is hot. As Californians arrive closer to the Proposition 19 vote for medical marijuana legalization on November 2, advocates are fighting fiercely for the cause as opponents are scrambling to impose regulations. This polarity is reflected in movies, too, with the sticky-green most commonly depicted as either a hilarious holy grail or a gateway to harder, darker substances.
I wrote, directed, and produced Bad Batch, my first feature film that's about to premiere in Los Angeles and online for FREE. We produced the movie on a micro-budget, which follows three college students who meet over Facebook and can't handle an intense pot brownie high one night. Check out this clip for info on the screening, and the trailer's down below:
Tickets are FREE but going fast. If the movie seems like something you'd be into, check it out! (Trailer's below.) If you'd like to attend the premiere, please register through our Eventbrite invitation. The premiere party, taking place at Downtown Independent Theater in Los Angeles will also feature live music, booths presenting info on both sides of Prop 19, a Q&A with the cast and crew following the 70 min. feature and more.
It doesn't matter if you get high or not, check out Bad Batch for free this Thursday night in LA and at PotBrownies.Net. And if you have your own #BadBatch experience, it would be cool to hear about it on Twitter. - @AbeSchwartz
