ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)– It`s a documentary about heroin use in St. Louis. “Anatomy of An Overdose” director Sean Trani says it`s a project with a big message
“It had an immediate value and that`s to deter people from trying heroin not even once,” said Trani.
Dr. Joseph Forand with St. Anthony’s Medical Center approached First Rule Film and Broadcast to make the movie. It was funded by St. Anthony’s Charitable Foundation, The Missouri Society of Anesthesiologists and the National Council on Drug and Alcohol Abuse. The budget was $20,000 and went well over the original budget. Producers say it took a year to finish the project and they were determined to get it done.
