Short Film: FRONTLINE FENTANYL, 23min., CAN, Documentary

Documentary Short Film Festival

Frontline posterCanada’s fentanyl crisis has struck British Columbia the hardest, with nearly 1,000 overdose deaths counted in 2016 for that province alone. Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside — considered ground-zero of the epidemic — has been left to fend for itself, while they await an expansion of alternative treatment and drug policy reform.

This documentary follows the Overdose Prevention Society and Spikes on Bikes — two grassroots community initiatives made up by users themselves, who respond, intervene and reverse overdoses in the neighbourhood on a day-today basis.
