Hello, Ez Sez Friends!
I wanted to share the news about my upcoming documentary, Grass Fed, being produced by Muse Entertainment.
The film, my first full-length feature (Tree Weeks, Man of Grease, Posthumous Pickle Party and Dockside to Bedside were all 45-55 minute TV docs) stars Montreal actor-comedian Mike Paterson and his impassioned journey to treat his debilitating sciatica back pain with an edible medical marijuana and hemp-infused diet and get back in shape in the four months leading up to his wedding with his lovely fiancée Monika Schmidt down in Mexico.
According to the film’s producer Jesse Prupas of Muse, “when we first set-out to make Grass Fed, only dried marijuana was permitted for patients. We had to travel to Colorado and California to find legal edibles. Never did we imagine the Supreme Court would legalize edibles here in Canada too. Timing-wise, we struck gold and the film will integrate the Court's decisive ruling into its story arc.”
Or, as Mike sums up in the film, "medicine never tasted so good."
We filmed over the past year in Montreal, Smiths Falls (Ont.), L.A., Laguna Beach, Denver, and Cancun, and I've been in the editing room the past few months with with the the ultra-talented editor Rosella Tursi creating this doc for you to enjoy.
Grass Fed is coming to the CBC's Documentary Channel in Fall 2015 and TV channels and web outlets in other countries too. I'll keep you all posted here at EzSez.com as things develop.
I really can't wait for you to see this movie. It's a fun one!
