The Opiate Generation

Jenny Mackenzie

In a new documentary, filmmaker Jenny Mackenzie offers a deeply personal examination of the trials and extraordinary costs of opiate addiction. It’s about the lives of several young people struggling to get and stay clean. It’s about a family grieving the loss of their son to an overdose. And it’s about the doctors and therapists fighting to save lives. Mackenzie will join us to talk about her film and the harsh reality faced by a generation of young people struggling to survive America’s opioid crisis.

On Tuesday, September 26, RadioWest and the Utah Film Center are hosting a screening of Jenny Mackenzie's film Dying in Vein: The Opiate Generation. That's at the Main Downtown Library in Salt Lake City at 7 p.m. It's free and open to the public, and Doug Fabrizio will host a post-film Q&A with Ms. Mackenzie and several of the film's subjects. DETAILS. RSVP on Facebook
