August 18 ( Hollywood) High There, the new documentary comedy directed by and starring tabloid television legend Wayne Darwen, makes its world premiere Monday August 25th at the Action on Film International Film Festival in Monrovia, California.
The film, co-directed by veteran cinematographer Henry Goren, documents the pair's trip to the island of Hawaii in an attempt to film a reality television series focusing on the world's marijuana meccas pilot. Instead, Darwen becomes immersed in the island's drug culture while uncovering a government plot to incarcerate local marijuana advocate Roger Christie.

Already known in media circles as the model for Robert Downey Jr.'s tabloid reporter in Oliver Stone's Natural Born Killers, Darwen's become a hero to marijuana advocates and hailed in some quarters as the successor to Hunter S. Thompson.
High There is directed by Darwen and Goren, written by Darwen, and produced by Darwen, Goren and Burt Kearns, the award-winning documentary film and television producer who immortalized Darwen as a tabloid television innovator in his book, Tabloid Baby.
The film is a Sam Peters International Productions Unlimited and Good Story Productions presentation of a Rat Lung picture.
