DOXA 2022 Justice Forum Special Presentation

DOXA Documentary Film Festival, Western Canada's largest documentary film festival, returns to present its 21st edition in theatres and streaming online May 5 thru May 15, 2022!


DOXA 2022's Justice Forum Special Presentation of Love in the Time of Fentanyl (dir. Colin Askey) will take place Wednesday, May 10 at SFU Djavad Mowafaghian Cinema.

Love in the Time of Fentanyl is an intimate observation of the Overdose Prevention Society over a number of years, witnessing the exhausting but essential work required to keep the site running and the people dedicated to its continuance. A group of misfits, artists and drug users operate this renegade safe injection site in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. Love in the Time of Fentanyl is a crucial film from director Colin Askey—one that explores, with considerable care and compassion, the frontlines of the ongoing drug-poisoning epidemic in this city.

Tickets for this Special Presentation are available for purchase here. Following this screening, Love in the Time of Fentanyl will also be available online on DOXA's virtual festival platform.
