Cafe Vita have begun a new online video series, and it’s gorgeously produced.
‘Steadfast’ celebrates “the real-life legends all around us”.
Chapter One was released back in August (2013) and tells the story of 86-year old Seattle woman Edith Macefield who refused to sell her Ballard home to property developers, despite being offered 1 million dollars!
When Edith passed away she left the property to her close friend. The building still stands, albeit with a ghastly modern construction surrounding it.
Check out the full film below. Featuring interviews and stories from the folks in Ballard who know her legend the best.
We are looking forward to the ‘Steadfast’ series unfolding. More untold stories from fascinating Seattle legends.
‘Evergreen’ is a feature length documentary which follows the campaign to legalize Marijuana in Washington State.
Over 60% of us voted ‘YES’ on I-502 back in November, the bill to legalize recreational use.
It’s now up to the state liquor board to write up the rules and figure out how exactly legalization will work. And they have a timeline which includes handing out retail licenses before the end of the year.
If Washington can get it right, it really will be a model for the rest of the country. DC are sitting back and watching.
The documentary seems like a good place to start in getting up to speed with the campaign so far, and exploring what ‘legalization’ is actually going to mean.
TV travel host, and a leader of the YES on I-502 campaign, Rick Steves recently screened the entire film at his house for a few selected individuals. The hope is that a cable channel will pick it up for air sometime soon.
Check out the trailer above for a great sneak peak of the topics covered and for more info on the movie visit evergreendocumentary.com
