HEROIN(E)
“Heroin(e)” documents three women in Huntington, West Virginia as they fight the opioid epidemic in a city with an overdose rate 10 times the national average. Fire Chief Jan Rader spends the majority of her days reviving those who have overdosed; Judge Patricia Keller presides over drug court, handing down empathy along with orders; and Necia Freeman of Brown Bag Ministry feeds meals to the women selling their bodies for drugs.

As America’s opioid crisis threatens to tear communities apart, the Netflix Original Short Documentary Heroin(e) shows how the chain of compassion holds one town together.

“Heroin(e),” directed by Peabody award-winning filmmaker Elaine McMillion Sheldon, launched September 12 as a Netflix original documentary short. The film was produced in partnership with The Center for Investigative Reporting through the Glassbreaker Films initiative to support female filmmakers, made possible with support from the Helen Gurley Brown Foundation. The film premiered at the 2017 Telluride Film Festival and has been shortlisted for a Cinema Eye Award.

This is a free event hosted by the West Virginia Council of Churches, Community Impact Coalition, and the Appalachian Institue.

The WVCC is working across the state to combat the opioid epidemic by listening to community needs and filling the current gaps in resources and education.

This film is of a serious nature. Kids 14+ are welcome to attend, but understand that there are ****** themes covered in the film like overdose, death, and prostitution.
