Directed by Tamra Davis

United States 1998 82 mins. In English

Thurgood Jenkins (Dave Chapelle) aka Sir Smoke-a-Lot and his friends need to raise a million dollars to get their pal out of jail in Tamra Davis’s wickedly funny 1998 take on stoner culture. The obvious answer? Selling supercharged weed pilfered from the laboratory where Thurgood works as a janitor. Featuring an endless stream of cameos including John Stewart, Snoop Dogg, Tracy Morgan, Willie Nelson, Bob Saget, and Tommy Chong. “Baked could be viewed as pretty socially irresponsible, but it’s not a training film for children; it’s for adults.”—Dave Chapelle

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
