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.
