Review: 'MardiGrass' Movie

While attending MardiGrass 2012 in Nimbin, Australia, Antohnia Lyovtzsis filmed the event for her documentary.

Antohnia Lyovtzsis' MardiGrass documents the longtime cannabis festival that takes place in Nimbin, Australia. It's like a Rainbow Gathering with a political agenda - that is, to legalize marijuana.

Lyovtzsis attended MardiGrass 2012 - the event's 20th anniversary. Her shaky camera captures preparations for the two-day fest and the activities that include parades, contests, music and speeches. Canadian activist Mamakind makes a special appearance in this 95-minute doc. Watch the entire film below.

MardiGrass 2013 took place last weekend as part of Global Marijuana March worldwide events.
