SEE THE FILM

Presented by Documentary Director and Keynote Speaker, Jenny Mckenzie Who Will Lead a Discussion Following the Viewing.

Dying in Vein is a deeply personal exploration of opiate and heroin addiction through a cinéma vérité style that drops you directly into the lives of an addict in recovery, a couple trying to get clean, a family grieving the loss of their son, and an Emergency Room Physician trying to save one patient at time. Through these stories, the film explores the contemporary belief of ‘living life pain free’, and the shame and blame that exists around addiction. The film looks at the impact of socioeconomic class on our broken treatment system, and how a group of emergency care physicians are working to save their patients.

JOIN PANEL DISCUSSION!

Following the viewing, there will be a panel discussion and Q&A session which will a include substance abuse expert, young person in recovery, parent of an addict, and local law enforcement. Resource tables will also be available on site.
