“Good Vibes”: A sisterhood based on love of cannabis. CONTRIBUTED
NEW YORK CITY — “Good Vibes,” an original comedy pilot that follows four female cannabis aficionados, premiered on July 30 at the 42nd Asian American International Film Festival here.
Queens-based “Good Vibes” creator and executive producer Nicole Maxali uses her hometown of San Francisco as the backdrop to showcase strong, funny Asian American women navigating within the burgeoning green rush of the soon-to-be juggernaut cannabis industry.
“I am thrilled ‘Good Vibes’ was selected to represent another facet of Asian American life,” Maxali said. “’Crazy Rich Asians’ proved to Hollywood executives that Asian American stories are worth telling, but to have a female-driven cannabis series selected in such a respected festival is a ground-breaking moment.”
“Good Vibes” follows four Bay Area cannabis female aficionados – starring Maxali together with Kristine Alyssa Gerolaga, Elena Estér, and Sarita Ocón — who are rooted in their sisterhood, their Filipino communities, and their love for cannabis.
