No Way Out

Vancouver is North America's most active area of injection drug use. It also houses some of the poorest and most abused people in Canada. This film traces the lives of two middle aged couples over a five year period. They began using injection drugs such as heroin and cocaine since childhood and have remarkably survived all this time. Interspersed with Gabor Gasztonyi's black and white images of Vancouver's Downtown Eastside each person in the film tells their unique story of survival in an environment of physical and psychological adversity. No Way Out is a true glimpse into the lives, suffering, elation and tragedy of people who have lived their entire lives in a world of drugs. The film reveals an honesty of emotion and candidness rarely seen in documentary films which seek to portray the life of the addict.

In this surprisingly good movie, Gabor Gasztonyi raise interesting questions, but use a different angle this time around.
