FRENCHY DREAMS OF HASHISH
A documentary film by (collabo!)
Frenchy Dreams of Hashish is a documentary film about the master Hashishin Frenchy Cannoli and a small group of Emerald Triangle cannabis farmers in Northern California. Frenchy and his wife Kimberly produced Frenchy Dreams of Hashish in collaboration with the director of the film, Jake Remington, and his production company (collabo!). From the beginning, the intention behind the film was to reintroduce traditional hashish to the public and amplify Frenchy’s and the farmers’ ethos of sustainable farming and their dedication to quality sun-grown cannabis. During filming, the cannabis industry in California was experiencing the waves of change brought on by the legalization of adult-use cannabis – these changes negatively affected and threatened the livelihood of the small farmers Frenchy worked with. This maelstrom of bureaucracy and hypocrisy ended up being the context of the film in which Frenchy and the farmers’ fight for quality – and survival – intensified. This mistreatment of farmers is still happening today and with the release of this documentary, we hope to bring awareness and change to the situation surrounding cannabis in northern California.
