Oyxana - haunting must see documentary on drug abuse in America

A hauntingly beautiful documentary about the epidemic of opiate and other drugs of abuse in Oceana, WV - given the nickname "Oxyana" by local residents. The interviewees provide an unparalleled openness in their discussions of their addiction and its tragic effects on their lives.

You can rent the documentary online at Vimeo for $3.99. Every American should see this video. This amounts to narcoterrorism on US soil by those who capitalize off the poverty and demoralization of the disenfranchised unemployed.


Below are a few reviews from the Oxyana website.

"Oxyana is a beautiful and savage poem, a breathing document, and most importantly, a work of nonfiction executed with compassion, objectivity, and commitment to cold, hard reality."
Twitch Film

"a haunting glimpse at the American dream, collapsed."
New York Post

"fascinating in its raw honesty."
Wall Street Journal

"...vital, powerful and striking"
The Playlist

"an important film, that deserves to be seen"
The Hollywood Reporter

"a sensitive, powerful and important account of a particularly dark moment, in a quiet American town"
Thompson on Hollywood
