Anthony Haden Guest did a nice interview with Richard Stratton for Standard Culture. That got me digging, and as a result you’ve got something fun to watch.
“A documentary chronicling the life of author Richard Stratton, from his early experiments with marijuana in suburban Massachusetts to his ultimate entry into the world of high volume, international hashish and marijuana trade. His involvement in the drug market, including the shipment of 7 tons of hashish from war-riddled Beirut into New York Harbor, led to his arrest and conviction to 25 years in maximum-security prison. This video, through re-enactments, stock footage, score and interview, tells the unbelievable story.”
Yekra is a revolutionary new distribution network for feature films.
The Legend of Cool ‘Disco’ Dan" is the story of black Washington DC told from the perspective of Cool “Disco” Dan starting with his birth during the civil rights era and follows his life parallel with the rise of Go-Go music through the 1980s (which is the unheard but yet dominant urban music of DC) and also local DC politics with Marion Barry’s rise and fall. Despite ending up homeless Cool “Disco” Dan used graffiti to escape the social problems D.C. had in the 1980s when things turned violent and became known as the Murder Capital of the United States. Cool “Disco” Dan ends up as a cult character of DC and his name becomes a symbol of survival during DC’s most trying years.
