Fentanyl Epidemic - Ten Dollar Death Trip Director Dominic Streeter
Vancouver is currently facing a fentanyl epidemic. The new wave of opiod addiction is a core part of daily life in Vancouver's downtown east side. When seeing this with his own two eyes director Dominic Streeter of Hied and Seek Films knew he had to shed some light on this and ask some very important questions.
In his Netflix documentary "Ten Dollar Death Trip" Dom and the team spend time with the people who live in Vancouver's "drug ghetto by design". He speaks with current addicts, former addicts, the people doing the work to keep people safe in this environment that is rife with overdoses and even a very candid interview with one of the dealers.
It is a hard hitting documentary but I believe more than anything else it shows the humanity, the care, the compassion and the community of those affected. In fact Dom even goes as far as to say there is a greater sense of community there, than anywhere back home.
In this interview we get into his motives for being a director, for choosing this topic and much more.
