overcoming an addiction
TV documentary in development
Intoxication is an archaic state. People have always used various methods to enter other states of consciousness. They dance to ecstasy, meditate, or ingest one substance or another.
In many cultures, intoxication plays an essential role in rites of passage. In our Western society, however, it has come to be associated primarily with the odor of the reprehensible. It stands for the dysfunctional and we seem to have forgotten how to deal with it in a constructive way.
(IN)DEPENDENT is a film about seven people who deal with addiction or its prevention in their work. Our focus is not on the patients, but on those who work with them and on those who implement preventive concepts in work with children and youths.
