Raw Opium Canadian television premiere on TV Ontario Wednesday Oct 5

By Katherine Dodds On October 04, 2011 | 2 Comments

Hot on the heels of InSite's victory - Raw Opium will have it's television premiere on TV Ontario October 5. 

One of Raw Opium's characters Derek on the streets of Vancouver.

From the Raw Opium Blog: "A major story-thread in the film focuses on Derek, an IV drug user on Vancouver's Downtown Eastside and the InSite clinic which has been so central to his life. So we expect a major topic of the chat will relate to last week's Supreme Court decision ordering the Conservative Government to allow Insite to stay open."

Please Join Us!


When: Oct. 5, 9 -10 PM EST

(Part 2: Oct. 12, 9 -10  PM EST)

Details on KensingtonTV's blog.

TVO and Kensington TV  are hosting an online live chat during the broadcast with Special Guest Richard Elliott, Executive Director, Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network (pictured on the right).

Richard is a member of the International Advisory Committee of the International Centre for Human Rights and Drug Policy. He has authored numerous reports, papers and articles on a range of legal and human rights issues related to HIV/AIDS, appeared before legislative committees, taught or lectured at several law schools, and presented extensively on HIV-related human rights issues across the country and internationally.

Richard Elliott and the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network defended Insite at the Supreme Court of Canada in May 2011, in the case in which the Conservative Government tried to shut Insite clinic down.

We're in POV Magazine

The latest edition of Point of View magazine is hot off the press! Hello Cool World is quite literally all over it. First of all, check out the fantastic cover. The Surviving Progress artwork was mastered and created by Hello Cool World's very own designer Terry Sunderland.

POV CoverSurviving Progress, a Canadian feature documentary executive produced by Mark Achbar (director of The Corporation) and inspired by Ronald Wright’s A Short History of Progress that looks at the deep-seated habits within human behavior that threaten our very survival. The film examines the consequences of economic and technical growth, and describes ‘progress traps’ – modes of action in pursuit of prosperity and security that lead to famine, bankruptcy, and the threat of human extinction.  

This latest issue is all about the Toronto International Film Festival, making Raw Opium’s feature ad a natural fit. Raw Opium is a phenomenal documentary that looks into the American war on drugs, and sheds light and awareness on critical issues around addiction. While Raw Opium is not in this year’s festival, the film is being self distributed by Kensington Communications and a feature ad in Point of View offers fantastic exposure for the film. Check out Colette’s previous blog entry for more on this incredible project. 

Also, take note of the inside back cover of this issue and you will see another beaming example of Mr. Sunderland’s immense talent and Hello Cool World’s  strategic ad placement.

Collaborating for the Cause

By Colette On September 01, 2011 | 0 Comments


Robert Lang

I recently had the privilege of meeting with the talented folks over at Kensington Communications that created RAW OPIUM: PAIN PLEASURE PROFITS, one of the documentary projects Hello Cool World has been involved with over the past year.

I was eager to sit down with producer Robert Lang and Kensington’s social media lead Amanda Connon-Unda to get a full update.

Kensington first approached Hello Cool World (HCW) last fall looking for strategy advice on self-distributing their film. In May, we worked with Kensington to host the world premiere of RAW OPIUM at DOXA and to strategize grassroots outreach across North America.

Colette joined Hello Cool World team back in 2003 and was a key organizer for The Corporation and The Take's grassroots outreach efforts across North America.

After being inspired by the organizing and awareness building potential of the internet and social issue films, she returned to school to study Communications and sharpen her skills.

Once graduating, Colette returned to Hello Cool World once again as a grassroots campaign consultant. She is now the Director of Distribution for Hello Cool World's new fair trade distribution arm.

Harm Reduction, Raw Opium, and InSite

DOXA FlyerRaw Opium, Hello Cool World and Harm Reduction

Hello Cool World is thrilled to be a communty partner for the upcoming DOXA screening of Raw Opium on May 7. We think this film is a timely and much-needed look at the impacts of the war on drugs, from our own DTES 'hood to the case study of Portugal as a decriminalization success story. 

And of course we also are big supporters of InSite Safe Injection Site. Now that Harper's conservatives are in again, we really need to go to battle keep InSite open. the story of insite is woven through the film Raw Opium, and we hope the film will spark debate over this issue. And of course we hope people will want to take action!

To this end we are working with the filmmakers to engage audiences as the film launches. Please JOIN US and help us in getting the word on the street by printing and distributing some flyers:

Some upcoming dates to take note of:

VANCOUVER: May 7, noon: Raw Opium at DOXA

May 12: InSite Court Date

May 17: Health, Harm Reduction and the Law: The InSite Case and the Future of Canadian Drug Policy

SAVE THE DATE TORONTO: May 25, Raw Opium Screening
