Watch: 'Patty Are You Bringing Weed in from Jamaica?' Short Doc
"You wouldn't have believed how strong this stuff was." There's nothing like a good story. This short film is an animated documentary made by filmmaker Matthew Salton, who spent over two years creating this entirely on his own - recording then preparing then animating then editing the 9-minute film. In 1968 Patty was a flight attendant, who realized she could smuggle prime pot in from Jamaica with relative ease, given her line of work. She is 77 years old now, and this is her version of what happened. Amazing. After playing at numerous film festivals, Patty Are You Bringing Weed in from Jamaica? is now available to watch online. And boy is it a wild story. Definitely makes me want to try some of that special white-feathery ganja.
