Film: Crime of the Century – Sunday, November 14 @ 4 PM

In collaboration with Blossom Sustainable Development and Shinnecock Nation, SAC will screen The Crime of the Century. This is a searing indictment of Big Pharma and the political operatives and government regulations that enable over-production, reckless distribution, and mass abuse of synthetic opiates. Exploring the origins, extent, and fallout of one of the most devastating public health tragedies of our time, with half a million deaths from overdoses this century alone, the film reveals that America’s opioid epidemic is not a public health crisis that came out of nowhere.
