video and films
Released in June 2017 -but such an important film for the activist community of people who use drugs and our peers around the world, we thought we should share again on the week of the CND 2018, in Vienna.
A truly incredible film by Drug Reporter and INPUD -which looks at the lives of people who use drugs in a way without sentiment but lots of power, emotion as well as being a really beautiful look into the global community of activists - people who use drugs. We are proud of knowing the incredible people who are in this film, who do this work -and who created such an uplifting and insightful look into our daily lives, all around the world. Don't miss it.

"The film gives us an astonishingly intimate look at the lives,
tribulations and inspiring resilience of drug using human beings."
Gabor Maté M.D
"The film takes us through one day in the life of eight people, from seven cities, in seven different countries of the world, from morning until night. They all have something in common - all of them use drugs. But these people are not defined by their drug use. All of them have their unique personalities, stories, and social networks. And the environment in which they live, the attitudes they face, the laws that regulate drug use, and the health services available to them have an enormous impact on their lives. This film is not only about drug users - it was also produced by drug users. It strives to challenge our common myths and preconceptions about drugs and the people who use them. It gives a voice to those representing one of the most marginalised communities of our world, to tell stories untold about hate, love, suffering, and happiness. It shows how they engage in social activism to break the silence and fight the stigma that shadows their days." (Drug Reporter)
