The documentary takes place during the 10th Conference on Cannabinoids in Medicine in Berlin in 2019, organised by the International Association for Cannabinoids in Medicine (IACM), which Franjo co-founded and directed for several years.
This award-winning documentary is a journey through his life and work over the last 30 years with interviews with his colleagues and fellow scientists like Raphael Mechoulam, Mark Ware, Kirsten R Müller-Vahl and Manuel Gúzman. Our CEO Tjalling Erkelens is also featured in an interview as one of the people Franjo met in his journey.
