In 1998, I told several of my friends that I wanted to party in Amsterdam in 1999, nine people joined me. It was a good time, we were there in the midst of Cannabis Cup, people were in town from around the world.

In researching in order to have an educated perspective when writing the script, I came up with the idea for a documentary. The video below is my short film that was featured in two film festivals in 2007 in New York and on the isle of Martha’s Vineyard, MA:
