KAANI A Film on Opium

 



This beautiful piece of cinematography explores the customs of the Wancho people of the Patkai Hills in India, who still live traditional lives but have been plagued by opium addiction.  It's a harrowing and surreal clashing of worlds:  a remote tribe deal with the familiar symptoms of opiate addiction in realtime is unlike anything you've seen before.  And their government's response is admirable as well.  Definitely worth the watch.  (Bonus points if you can guess who introduced them to the opium poppy).
