New York City area readers won't want to miss the New York premiere of "You Know What I'm Saying?" on Friday, July 16 at 10:30pm on Channel 13/WNET (rebroadcast Sunday, July 18 at 12:30am).

Directed and produced by Emily Fisher and Frizzi Maniglio, "You Know What I'm Saying?" is a poignant, hard-hitting half-hour documentary about needle exchange, chronicling a community in the South Bronx fighting to survive drug abuse, the spread of AIDS, and the hostility of a larger society in the midst of the drug war. By telling the story of one community's fight for life, "You Know What I'm Saying?," which features the St. Ann's Corner of Harm Reduction needle exchange program, challenges viewers to rethink the consequences of punitive national and local drug policies, indicting those who favor cramming jails over saving lives.

"You Know What I'm Saying?" is being presented as part of Thirteen/WNET's independent film and video series, "Reel New York." The film series has a companion web site,, including video clips, interviews, and other resources.
