“Evergreen” finished as one of the Top Ten Documentaries screened this year at SIFF, the largest and most well-attended film festival in the United States. The “Evergreen” producers are currently shopping the film for wider distribution as cannabis reform news continues to break daily across the nation.
“A fascinating, extraordinarily well-researched and executed doc… How the law was constructed, why it succeeded in passing, what loopholes still exist that could potentially continue discriminatory law enforcement practices – it’s all laid out digestibly and compellingly by Morton and his team.”
“3 out of 4 stars. It’s at its best when it’s creating a dialogue between supporters and opponents, calling special attention to the thoughtful reasoning behind the opposition.”
“A compelling, provocative and enlightening glimpse into the complex and sometimes contrary world of cannabis legalization in the United States. All of the controversy, infighting and emotion that is inherent in democracy is included in this fast moving example of what it takes to exact reform under the iron fist of pot prohibition. Any serious reformer, cannabis enthusiast or student of history will want to take the time to view this historic time capsule of a film.”
