Free Screening of Dying in Vein at East High
East High School invites you to a free screening of Dying in Vein. The movie 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 from the opiate crisis.
The 68-minute film will be followed by a group discussion with physicians and recovery experts.
Please note: This is an adult film, with explicit language and drug use, and may not be suitable for all audiences.
