14th annual International Studies Film Series

"Raw Opium" with talk by writer/director Peter Findlay

Thursday, March 6, 2014, at 6:30 p.m.

Dauphin Humanities Center 051

"Raw Opium" is a 2011 feature-length documentary (and two-part TV series) 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.

"Raw Opium" is a journey around the world and through time, where conflicting forces do battle over the narcotic sap of the opium poppy – from an opium master in southeast Asia to a U.N. drug enforcement officer on the border of Afghanistan hunting down the smugglers of central Asia; from a former Indian government drug czar and opium farmer to a crusading Vancouver doctor and Portuguese street worker who daily confront the realities of drug addiction. The flower has played, and continues to play, a pivotal role – not just in the lives of people who grow, manufacture and use it – but also in the increasingly tense sphere of international relations. In the process, our assumptions about addiction and the War on Drugs are challenged.
