Southampton Arts Center Presents the Film: Crime of the Century September 24, 2022

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 24 @ 6 PM

America's opioid crisis isn't a piece of tragic happenstance. It's a crime; specifically, it's a crime borne of capitalism.

That is the foundation of the film The Crime of the Centuryby Alex Gibney, a searing indictment of Big Pharma and the politics that have enabled over-production, reckless distribution, and the subsequent mass abuse of synthetic opiates. The film explores the origins, extent, and fallout of what many consider to be one of the most devastating public health tragedies of our time.

This co-presentation features Shinnecock Nation Member Micah Hunter; Blossom Sustainable Development MSW CASAC-T Program Director and SAMHSA Tribal Opioid Response (TOR) Project Meesha Johnson; Judge Deborah Kooperstein (retired) of counsel to the firm Messina, Perillo & Hill LLP; and retired senior probation officer, Credentialed Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselor (CASAC), and instructor at the Molloy University Addiction Studies Program Jim Mullan.

September is National Recovery Month. We hope you will join us for this special program shining a light on this critical issue.
