MURRAY UT — Join us for a free screening of Jenny Mackenzie’s challenging documentary: Dying in Vein, the Opiate Generation. Followed by a panel discussion led by experts in the field.

FOSTER PARENTS: This counts for 2 HOURS of credits towards re-licensure!

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 a 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 is working to save their patients.

From Academy Award Winning Producer Geralyn White Dreyfous.
