Nominated for an Academy Award (Best Documentary, Short Subject), Heroin(e) is a powerful look at the opioid crisis in Huntington, West Virginia, where the overdose rate is 10 times the national average. Sheldon, a Peabody Award–winning filmmaker, focuses on signs of hope emerging from the center of the epidemic there by following three women who are working to break the devastating cycle of drug abuse, one person at a time. One of those remarkable women, Huntington Fire Chief Jan Rader, joins us along with the film’s director for what’s sure to be a memorable evening. (39 mins., video)
