New film on meth harm

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:30 pm on 7 May 2019

New Zealand has a long and damaging relationship with methamphetamine. Police and customs have been fighting for twenty years to try and reduce its prominence and social organisations from charities to gangs are constantly looking for ways to reduce harm. 

Over the last year a team of New Zealand Herald journalists and Greenstone Pictures have been working with the communities hammered by methamphetamine to make the documentary Fighting the Demon

New Zealand Herald visual journalist and director of the film Mike Scott joins Jesse from our Hamilton studio.
