Raw Opium is almost ready

Our new feature documentary Raw Opium is slated for theatrical release in 2011.

We completed filming in India, Tajikistan, Portugal and Vancouver and post-production is complete! Advance screenings will be announced here soon.

We have support from OMDC Film Fund, Canwest Hot Docs Documentary Fund and Rogers Documentary Fund, along with the broadcast commitment from TVO and ZDF-Arte for Germany and France.

Stay tuned here for our trailer (which is coming very soon) and for more updates on this very exciting project!

Raw Opium is a two-part documentary about a commodity that has tremendous power – both to ease pain and to destroy lives. The opium poppy is the raw material for heroin, fueling a vast criminal trade larger than the economies of many countries.
