As deaths in Vancouver, Canada reach an all-time high, the Overdose Prevention Society opens its doors—a renegade supervised drug consumption site that employs active and former drug users. Its staff and volunteers do whatever it takes to save lives and give hope to a marginalized community in this intimate documentary that looks beyond the stigma of people who use fentanyl and other drugs.

Fentanyl deaths are an epidemic across many states in the US. It affects all ages, ethnicities, and socio-economic classes. We know that Fentanyl deaths and overall drug addiction are health emergencies draining available funds for treatment. What solutions are available? What can we do to stop this tragic loss of life in our communities? Join the conversation.


Join us for a virtual screening followed by a group discussion, supported by film team and local organization resources, that all attendees will receive prior to the film. Tickets are free. Register HERE.

“Love in the Time of Fentanyl” will premiere on PBS on your local KBTC Public TV station in March 2023 please check the website for more details.  In addition, the film will stream on the PBS Video App on February 13, 2023.
