The Underground of Hope
directed by Jan Bluz, Poland 2018, 83'
The title underground of hope refers to the Polish community of supporters of medical marijuana, from patients and their families, through doctors who offer their patients this sort of treatment, to activists from legalization movements and those who bring medicinal products from abroad or produce them on the spot—illegally, since marijuana is still banned in Poland. The director compares the situation in Poland, Spain, Slovenia and Israel. Discussions with experts and doctors leave no doubt—only drug dealers benefit from the penalization of marijuana.
