Documentary: J Is For Junkie Trailer (Video)

J Is For Junkie is a documentary directed by Corey Davis following the lives of people in the streets of Atlanta who are battling crack addiction. From the director:

“Greedmont TV and Creative Control presents J or Junkie. This is my first serious attempt at film making… Growing up I never had a father, because he was out running the streets getting high… Right around the time I was born, the mid 80′s, African-American communities across the country was struck by the crack epidemic. Which robbed us our prideful culture and instantly perverted it into a counter-culture where playgrounds became warzones and families were destroyed.

Growing up, I never really respected junkies… I Just always knew they couldn’t be trusted and they made fucked up decisions… But one day in October, I decided to start filming a group crack addicts in Atlanta who live outside in a small cove behind a Texaco, infamously dubbed as the “Living Room” who share their stories and tell us what it’s like to battle a deadly addiction to crack-cocaine. Their stories would change me forever… [Directed by Corey Davis]”
