The Forbidden Medicine

Zee Ninetynine and CONFIGURE/DISFIGURE present graduation documentary “The Forbidden Medicine”.

Meet George Hutchings, 45, one among thousands of medicinal users of cannabis in the UK. After a lifetime of being criminalised and having to acquire the medicine he needs on the street, George is fed up and decides to test the limits of the law by travelling to Amsterdam to import 60 grams of cannabis back into the UK, attempting to declare it at the customs’ Red Channel as a medication with a prescription from his English doctor.

George suffers from Charcot-Marie-Tooth Neuropathy, an incurable muscle and sensation degeneration disease which will eventually confine him to a wheelchair. Having seen his quality of life severely compromised by the side-effects of the volume of pills and tablets prescribed by the NHS, George has turned to solely smoking marijuana for symptom relief, with amazing results. Marijuana is a plant that is classified as a Class B controlled substance, and blacklisted by the NHS as a drug with no medicinal value.

Includes English and Russian subtitles.

Perfect Storm: The England Riots Documentary

Wideshut.co.uk

“If the young are not initiated into the village, they will burn it down just to feel its warmth.” — African Proverb.

This mini-documentary film looks at the initial causes and wider context surrounding the recent England riots. Politicians refuse to acknowledge their role in creating a deeply unfair and failing society, a perfect storm of police brutality, city poverty and austerity measures, that will only get worse unless the root problem is addressed.

Did you know for the rioters to be on par with the looting by the financial bailouts, corporate tax avoiders and Libyan invasion, they would have to repeat the same level of damage……4,320 times?
