The film is a documentary about master Hashishin and Grow Up Hall of Fame inductee Frenchy Cannoli and a small group of Emerald Triangle cannabis farmers in Northern California as they try to reintroduce traditional hashish to the public and amplify their ethos of sustainable farming and their dedication to quality sun-grown cannabis. The film’s screening will be followed by a producer’s Q&A with Kimberly Hooks (widow of Frenchy Cannoli)
