Some of the films to be featured include:
WITH OR WITHOUT ME
Thi and Trung live in the gorgeous, rice-terraced mountains of Vietnam's far northwest. Like many young men in this region on the main heroin route from Laos to China, they're drug users, and they have HIV. Thi wants to kick his habit; Trung just wants to die. WITH OR WITHOUT ME is an intimate, tragicomic portrayal of two guys strung out on the edge of the map in a Communist country struggling with drug use, and the wives, family, doctors and friends trying to pull them back from the brink.- screening June 10 at 3:45pm
UNDER YOUR SHELTER
In a beautiful mountainous region, away from noise and city lights, a non-profit therapeutic community for drug users buzzes with life. The uniqueness of this long term program is that the community land is cultivated not only as a therapeutic tool but also to produce organic products for self sustainability. Because the community members must remain anonymous, their stories are told in the shadows behind objects and activities, through their work and life in the community. - screening June 10 at 12:30pm
