The Stairs Film Screening

August 13   6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for a screening of The Stairs, a moving documentary film about the lives of people who use drugs and the challenges they face.

San Francisco lost over 700 lives last year to drug overdose – over two times the number of lives lost to COVID-19. This month for Overdose Awareness Month – we’re sounding the alarm about this crisis and rallying to demand action to implement evidence-based solutions to end the overdose crisis in San Francisco.

Get your tickets today to join us virtually or in-person to view The Stairs, a moving and poignant documentary film about the lives of people who use drugs and the challenges they face.

EVENT SCHEDULE

  • 6 pm – 6:30 pm Dinner
  • 6:30 pm – 8 pm Film Screening
  • 8 – 8:30 pm Short Discussion

MORE ABOUT THE FILM

The Stairs tells the story of Marty, Greg and Roxanne, who each survived decades of street-involvement. Using their experiences to ease the paths of others, they perform social work in their old neighbourhood, while struggling to maintain their newly-found stability. Told over five years, The Stairs examines life on society’s margins. Defying stereotypes through intimate portraits, its remarkable subjects are surprising, funny, shocking and moving.

CONTENT WARNING

This film discusses difficult subjects including fatal overdose, police violence, violence against women and sexual assault.
