Description

Drug Porn. 65 minutes. 2018.
A film by Frederick Maheux
Music by Bruno R. Julian

Professional Blu-Ray with 20 page booklet by Steven Purtill

Drug Porn is an experimental documentary about the spectacle of substance abuse on social media. In the context of the opioid and fentanyl crisis, the film explores the digital landscape of users who document and publicly share their consumption online.

Drug Porn is not only about the individual motivation to expose oneself, but about the Web as a media and how it transforms the notion of community, love, family and communication. More than 45 hours of footage, hundreds of pages of blog posts and interviews were distilled and remixed using glitch and cut-up techniques to insure anonymity, transcend the shock factor and unfold this complex, singular and stratified use of social media.

Limited to 100 copies.
