The Adventures of Dr Crackhead, trailer from Jennifer DiCresce on Vimeo.

Filmmaker Jennifer Di Cresce joins controversial author and research scientist Dr. Peter Ferentzy on a cross-country lecture tour advocating for greater compassion toward drug addicts. At first, the highly educated and populist Dr. Ferentzy seems ideally suited to bridge the gap between Canadian treatment facilities and it's insular addict population. But Ferentzy's tour soon turns into an unsettling journey through his own childhood wounds and questionable life choices. Is he the wrong guy with the right message?
