California 90420 is a new documentary film from New Coast Productions and Catchphrase Entertainment. The film chronicles the life of several of California's ¬Å“420-somethings¬Â including a 21 year-old pixie-like party girl named Ix, mother and cancer patient Amber, and Dale Sky Clare, an educator and activist behind the 2010 Prop 19 campaign in California. Digging deep into California's pot culture, California 90420 is not the usual political screed with the same old oft-repeated facts about hemp and marijuana that viewers are used to seeing. Rather it is a thoughtful document about a growing American sub-culture.
The release of CALIFORNIA 90420 could not be timelier. On April 2, federal agents from the DEA and IRS raided Oaksterdam University as well as the home of Oaksterdam University Founder, Richard Lee. Although medical marijuana is legal in California, it is still prohibited under federal law, leaving Oaksterdam in a precarious legal limbo. With Oaksterdam University now the subject of intense media scrutiny, CALIFORNIA 90420 offers viewers a unique, unfiltered perspective into what really takes place behind the doors of the school.
“Possibly the most honest marijuana film out there, CALIFORNIA 90420 gets right up in the business: medical patients, big-scale grows, Oaksterdam U, and the legalize movement…” – SF INDIE FEST
