Chong Comes to SIFF

My Seattle freelance assignment's been extended until mid-June, so I'm still here exploring the city. One of the treats during this visit has been attending the screening of A.K.A. Tommy Chong, at the SIFF (Seattle Film Festival). A good friend of mine, Will Becton, produced and edited the film and came up from L.A. to Seattle for the screening. He handled the Q&A after the film much better than he did posing with me here for the paparazzi.

The film chronicles the government's obsession with taking down Tommy Chong, of Cheech & Chong fame. It's a story which deserves to be told, and it's told well. If you're in NYC, check it out when it premiers at the FILM FORUM, June 14th.
