Code of the West

A valid video file was found, or could not be loaded!

 

At a time when the world is rethinking its drug policies large and small, one state rises to the forefront. Once a pioneer in legalizing medical marijuana, the state of Montana may now become the first to repeal its medical marijuana law. Set against the sweeping vistas of the Rockies, the steamy lamplight of marijuana grow houses, and the bustling halls of the State Capitol, CODE OF THE WEST follows the political process of marijuana policy reform – and the recent federal crackdown on medical marijuana growers across the country. This is the story of what happens when politics fail, emotions run high and communities pay the price.

Code of the West is splendid documentary storytelling on many levels. It captures the full complexity and nuance of the medical marijuana issue without polemics. It's also a wonderful examination of what democracy looks like up close, when citizens acting in good faith fight in support of opposing convictions.
Robert MacCoun, Professor of Law and Public Policy, UC Berkeley

Code of West brilliantly captures Montana's debates on cannabis... Outstanding job... The cinematography is stunning.
Charles Johnson, Helena Independent Record

On display here is a keen eye for the how the legislative process works - and doesn't - and the film does an expert job weaving a compelling narrative... Code of the West is a must-see for anyone interested in drug reform and patients' - or states' - rights.
Jordan Smith, Austin Chronicle

Set against the backdrop of Montana's unique cultural and physical landscape, Code of the West explores the complexity of the medical marijuana debate currently unfolding in many US states. Richman Cohen's focus on the human side of the debacle skillfully navigates the nuances of preemption, discretionary enforcement, and other contours of what is one of today's most interesting regulatory issues. Engaging as it is educational, this film is a powerful tool for exploring the legal, social, and generational facets of today's drug policy debate.
Leo Beletsky, Assistant Professor of Law and Health Sciences, Northeastern University School of Law

Holy Land (Abridged version)
"Holy Land" is an unprecedented, multi-character documentary about a tumultuous year in the West Bank. The film zeroes in on the explosive issue of the Israeli settlements: its protagonists are both Israeli settlers and the Israelis and Palestinians who oppose them. It's a cross section of the West Bank never seen in one film: right and left, secular and religious, from Hasidim to Hamas.

States of Grace
Winner of multiple audience awards, States of Grace intimately captures the profound transformation of a revered physician and her family in the wake of a life-changing accident. For Dr. Grace Dammann, a pioneering AIDS specialist who was honored by the Dalai Lama, a routine commute across the Golden Gate Bridge turned tragic when another driver crashed head on into her car. After seven weeks in a coma and a dozen surgeries, Grace miraculously awakened with her cognitive abilities intact, though her body was left shattered. States of Grace follows her return home to the Buddhist community where she and her partner Nancy "Fu" Schroeder live with their teenage daughter Sabrina, who was born with cerebral palsy.

Mind/Game: The Unquiet Journey of Chamique Holdsclaw
From the rough-edged courts of Astoria, Queens and recruited by Coach Pat Summitt for the University of Tennessee's Lady Vols, Chamique Holdsclaw was hailed as the "female Michael Jordan," impressing crowds with her artistry, athleticism and drive. A 3-time NCAA champ and No.1 draft pick in the WNBA, Holdsclaw seemed destined for a spectacular professional career-until her long-suppressed battle with mental illness threatened to derail her life. Mind/Game intimately chronicles Holdsclaw's athletic accomplishments and personal setbacks, and her decision-despite public stigma- to become an outspoken mental health advocate. Still, she would face dramatic, unexpected challenges to her own recovery. The film, narrated by Glenn Close, tells a powerful story of courage, struggle, and redemption.
