| 30 min

Inspired by the hit documentary Through a Blue Lens, Flipping the World is an honest look at the world of youth and drug addiction as told by those who have been there. Seven culturally diverse high school students meet with members of the Odd Squad – Vancouver police officers who, since 1998, have been filming people addicted to drugs. The students talk to the cops, then meet some young people in recovery and others struggling with drug addiction. An important discussion starter, this film provides a wealth of teachable moments for educators and others who work with youth.

    Showing this film to anyone would be a terrible way to educate about drugs and drug abuse. The underlying message is "Kids, don't do heroin", which is spot on - no doubt, heroin is very bad for you. But it is also filled with the typical police viewpoint that all illegal drugs are bad, and makes a lot of ignorant statements about drugs which are not addictive at all and, regardless of their illegality, can actually be helpful in the right setting. It also includes the viewpoints of children who are clearly not very informed about the effects of the drugs they are discussing, nor do they attempt to understand those effects without taking off the blue sunglasses. It is propaganda at best.
