Lost Cinema Gems: Reefer Madness, 7:30PM
September 17 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Witness one of the most beloved propaganda films ever made that attempted to scare parents and their children into avoiding the use of its subject. This morality tale showcases that using will lead to a life full of crime including murder! Oh my!
The film would be largely forgotten until being rediscovered in the 1970s and would become seen as an unintentional satire among advocates of cannabis policy reform. It would even inspire a musical that was produced in the 1990s.
Join us in an evening that will be spent taking a deeper look into the history of the film plus the wild ride cannabis has taken in the eyes of the law in the United States and the rest of the world. We also invite you to stay after the screening for a Q & A session.
SEATING AND PRE-EVENT ENTERTAINMENT BEGIN AT 7:30 PM.
NOTE: Due to the sensitive nature of this film’s subject matter, Cinema of the Ozarks is merely viewing this film through a historical and scholarly lens.
