Prescription Thugs

   2015    Medicine
Director Chris Bell turns his camera on the abuse of prescription drugs and, ultimately, himself. After witnessing friends and relatives face tragedy as they become addicted to prescription drugs, Bell sets out to explore the goals of pharmaceutical companies and doctors in this ever-growing market, and asks how they are any different from back-alley drug-pushers. His journey leads to experts on the nature of addiction in our culture, as well as to pharmaceutical whistleblowers that testify to the solely dollar-driven aims of pharmaceutical companies.

Drug Short

   2018    Culture
Valeant Pharmaceuticals was a multinational specialty pharmaceutical company based in Canada. It grew rapidly through a series of mergers and acquisitions under the leadership of J. Michael Pearson. The company was involved in a number of controversies surrounding drug price hikes and the use of a specialty pharmacy for the distribution of its drugs, which led to an investigation by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and caused its stock price to plummet more than 90 percent from its peak while its debt surpassed $30 billion.
Wall Street short-sellers exposed a scam that regulators overlook: how Big Pharma gouges patients in need of life-saving drugs.
