Frenchy Dreams of Hashish LA

Frenchy Dreams of Hashish

A documentary film premiere experience that guide attendees through the unique journeys of craft cannabis cultivators in California.

The documentary film Frenchy Dreams Of Hashish follows the master hashishin (hashish-maker) Frenchy Cannoli, over a three-year period that spans the transistion from the end of the California medical market to the beginning of the Adult Use market, as he works with a small group of outdoor Emerald Triangle cannabis farmers in North California. Produced by Frenchy and his wife Kimberly, direct by the documentary filmmaker Jake Remington, the intention of the film is to reintroduce hashish to a Western public that has lost Touch with the traditional cannabis concentrate due to the success of the War on Drugs, and highlight the rthos sustainable farming and dedication to quality sun-grown cannabis shared by Frenchy and his farmers.

“The intention of the film is to highlight the ethos of sustainable farming and dedication to quality sun-grown cannabis shared by Frenchy and his farmers,” filmmaker Jake Remington says. “During filming, California’s cannabis industry experienced waves of change that negatively affected and threatened the livelihood of the small farmers Frenchy worked with. This maelstrom of bureaucracy and hypocrisy forms the context of the film in which Frenchy and the farmers’ fight for quality — and survival — intensified,” Remington adds. “Unfortunately, the mistreatment of small cannabis farmers is still happening today, and, with the release of this documentary, we hope to bring awareness and change to the situation.”

To that end, 20% of proceeds from all screenings of the film both in theaters and eventually online will be donated to the Origins Council, a nonprofit advocacy association that serves 900 licensed small and independent cannabis businesses in six legacy-producing counties throughout California. Origins Council in turn will use the money to support their project with the Lost Coast Farmers’ Guild of Humboldt County to research and develop the Guild’s petition to establish one of the first legally recognized cannabis appellations in the world.

“We are grateful to the Frenchy Cannoli Foundation for being so forward-thinking in making this donation,” says Genine Coleman, executive director of the Origins Council. “Frenchy was a well-beloved leader of our community, and his legacy continues with the important work of honoring and protecting legacy cannabis farming.”
