Indica Arena ~ Disco Sista’s Tent

FRIDAY 5 MAY

5 pm : Marijuana Australiana – Film screening and Q&A with film maker, Richard Barron

Marijuana Australiana is a rambunctious, intelligent and timely documentary about the history of cannabis culture in Australia – from its beginnings as a recreational drug among the country’s youth to its emergence into the mainstream as an alternative and effective medicine – and the political posturing around it. Mullumbimby-based Richard Baron’s informative and often funny film takes us to the nation’s cannabis capital, Nimbin, where he captures the sheer anarchic merriment of the legalise-it movement in footage of the MardiGrass.

7 pm : Druglawed – Film screening and Q&A with film maker, Arik Reiss

DRUGLAWED is the explosive documentary exposing how New Zealand has been co-opted by the US into fighting the failed War On Drugs. Over the last 100 years the US government has forced its drug control policies on almost every country on earth. 40 years since Richard Nixon declared the War On Drugs in 1972, 22 million Americans have been arrested for marijuana. Only one country in the world has higher arrest and conviction rates: New Zealand. DRUGLAWED examines how New Zealand fell in lockstep with US policies, and shows how smaller countries can break out.
