Louis Theroux: Heroin Town Special Screening

Join Dendy Cinemas at 7 pm November 17th, and 4 pm, November 18th and 19th for the special screening of Louis Theroux's HEROIN TOWN. 
A community caught in the vice-like grip of heroin addiction.
America's love affair with prescription painkillers has led to a population dependent on opiates. But since a crackdown on their over-prescription, where does this leave the two million Americans who developed a habit for these high-strength painkillers? With the pills now becoming increasingly expensive and scarce on the black market, vast numbers of Americans have turned to the cheaper and stronger opiate: heroin. The drug now claims more lives in the US than either car accidents or gun crime. And, for the first time in over two decades, life expectancy in the US is declining - largely attributed to the rise in fatal heroin overdoses. In Huntington, West Virginia, Louis will embed himself in an Appalachian community that is being devastated and stretched to its limits by widespread heroin use. With one in ten babies in the city born addicted to opiates and a fatal overdose rate 13 times the national average, this is ground zero of the nation's heroin epidemic. Louis follows the frontline emergency services, who respond multiple times a day to overdose call-outs, and spends time with a community of users who are caught in the vice-like grip of drug misuse and struggling to maintain their everyday lives.
