PKNI and Drugreporter launch their new documentary film in 4 cities across Indonesia ahead of World AIDS Day 2015.

2 Dec 2015

The short documentary film Dying a Slow Death: Inside Indonesia's Drug War, produced by the Indonesian Drug Users Network (PKNI) and the Drugreporter, documents the first-hand impacts of the drug war as experienced by the community itself. The documentary features testimony and interviews with people who use drugs, methadone patients, academics and religious leaders, and was filmed and conceived by local drug user community activists. Beginning with the execution of 14 drug traffickers earlier this year, the film details how Indonesia is sliding toward compulsory drug treatment, increased extortion and bribery, while creating more barriers to access of health and support services.

At the time of the publication of this article, the film launch takes place simultaneously in four cities across Indonesia – Jakarta, Bali, Bandung and Batam – and features public discussions with experts, public intellectuals, and community representatives on forging a more holistic response to drug issues in Indonesia.

Watch the movie and read the guest article by Edo Wallad, Media Officer of the Indonesian Drug Users Network, PKNI.
