Cottonland – OxyCodone / OxyContin


Photographer Nance Ackerman describes the havoc prescription painkiller OxyContin, wreaked in the already weakened Cape Breton town of Glace Bay.

The film guides us through a culture of economic and social depression where we encounter a number of men and women at different stages of dependency. Demystifying the world of the addict while showing us the complex social nexus that led to such despair, Cottonland emphasizes the importance of a collective approach to tackling addiction.
