Anatomy of an Overdose

Anatomy of an Overdose explores both the science and the human toll of heroin overdoses. The film’s executive producers are St. Anthony’s Medical Staff President Joseph Forand, M.D., and Pelopidas, LLC, co-founder Travis H. Brown. Local filmmaker Sean Trani wrote, directed, and edited the documentary.

Filmed over the course of a year in association with the Missouri Society of Anesthesiologists, St. Anthony’s Charitable Foundation, and Dan Duncan of NCADA, Anatomy of an Overdose takes a harrowing look at heroin from a chemical perspective. The film includes interviews with recovered heroin users, as well as with the Chief Medical Examiner for the City of St. Louis, police officers, and physicians.

Anatomy of an Overdose is part of the STL Heroin Project. The film is a project of First Rule Film & Broadcast, a division of Pelopidas, LLC.
