Stan is an experimental documentary based around the life of former heroin addict, Stan, who was among several thousand New York City teens in the 1940s who made up the world’s first teenage opioid epidemic. Using contemporarily shot footage, the film explores the shifting nature of drug use, its changing populations and recalls a time in the United States when drug treatment was virtually unavailable.
