Death is dangerous, it could hurt

director: Mariane Béliveau
original title: C'est dangereux la mort, ça pourrait faire mal
country: Canada
year: 2023
running time: 18 min.

synopsis

The three female protagonists present their personal relationship with intravenous drug use, and their intimate confessions are filled with fear and insecurity but also love for the state of intoxication. Ambient music in the background and colourful textures multiplying over shots of the everyday reality of drug users create an almost dreamlike world.

“I won’t feel the full effects the whole night, but it will help take my mind off things.”
