“American Pot Story” at Fort Lauderdale Film Fest Nov. 12, 2023

American Pot Story: Oaksterdam continues its national film festival circuit with a screening at the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival.

The award-winning documentary showcases Oaksterdam University, the world’s first cannabis college, and tells the origin story of the people who took monumental risks to make cannabis legalization possible. It celebrates the courageous heritage of the legacy industry and the movement that started at OU and would go on to impact the world.

Created by critically-acclaimed filmmakers Dan Katzir and Ravit Markus of New Love Films, the documentary sheds light on the cannabis legalization movement through the lens of OU leaders.

Katzir and Markus spent 10 years shadowing OU Founder Richard Lee and Executive Chancellor Dale Sky Jones as they fought to get the Prop 19 legalization measure on the ballot in California, then weathered a federal raid that threatened to shut them down. The film captures their struggles and triumphs as they fight to bring this topic to the mainstream.
