Viewer's Notes - Trailer for 'Square Grouper'

Rakontur Films, the excellent Miami-based independent film company, released a trailer last week for its next documentary, Square Grouper, about marijuana smuggling in South Florida during the 70s and 80s.  For those of you familiar with Cocaine Cowboys and Cocaine Cowboys 2, or the more recent sports documentary The U, the latest from Rakontur will likely be a similarly skillful blend of off-the-beaten-path storytelling.  You might want to get your copy of The U sooner than later, as the University of Miami is asking Rakontur to change the cover art.  The trailer for Square Grouper is below.  On Friday's Passing Notes, we speak with Rakonur director Billy Corben about his films, sports, and even action figures.
