Greetings, my name is Joaquin. I’ve lived in Humboldt about a decade. I made my first movie last year and am finishing the editing process now. The movie is a fictional account of how the shift to legality in the cannabis world has affected the local lifestyles and culture. It focuses on two central characters navigating the changing times.
Towards the end of the movie, there is a scene where an elder in the community shares a brief overview of the changes he has seen in the Humboldt hills since he arrived in the early 70’s til the present day (note that this character is played by a man who is reflecting his life experience, giving the scene and film added resonance). As he speaks, I would like to overlay his story with some visual images -preferably moving but stills could also work- to match the themes he talks about.
In particular, I’m seeking footage from cannabis raids, either CAMP footage or otherwise. If anyone has footage, photos, etc to share, I would love to connect! I am happy to give you more details about the film etc at that point. Cheers.
I can be contacted at [email protected]
