Event Description

Painkiller: Inside the Opioid Crisis, a TELUS Health Originals documentary tells the human story behind the opioid epidemic affecting Canada. The documentary seeks to raise awareness and end the stigma of addiction by educating and informing viewers on what Fentanyl is and how it is affecting our country.

A multifactorial epidemic fueled by legal and illegal activity, exacerbated by well-intentioned drug policies and annihilated by fentanyl (a drug 100x times more powerful than heroin with a nearly unmanageable margin of error that is contaminating supplies everywhere), features interviews with those who have survived opioid addictions and the families of those who didn't.

The director of the documentary, Mathew Embry, also asks experts including frontline responders, border services and addiction specialists to provide their perspective of the underlying problem to this ongoing crisis: How can our society treat pain without causing more? Awareness is a critical first step into understanding and then treating this crisis.

Doors open 6:30; film starts at 7:00.
