Somewhere Higher
Directed by Mohammad Gorjestani
25 minutes * USA
In this vibrant anthology, cannabis users tell us the other side of the story. They tell us that the perspective and clarity offered by cannabis far outweigh the vague, supposed risks. Whether they’re a poet seeking inspiration, a boxer recovering after a fight, or a young Muslim seeking a closer relationship to God. They tell us how herb has helped many Michiganders process grief, be more creative, and engage more completely with their loved ones.
