#SAFER is a documentary series about people who fight for harm reduction alternatives even when banned by their country’s legal system
#SAFER ARGENTINA takes us to the land of fire in South America, where the government has banned harm reduction alternatives for people who smoke, unchaining an illicit market of products that paradoxically are safer than the combustible tobacco which is allowed to be commercialized. We explore the motives, goals, and stories of advocates Diego Verrastro, Juan Facundo Teme, and Aylen Van Isseldyk, along with people involved in selling the illegal safer alternatives. Moreover, we take a look at the correlation between a local saint named Gauchito Gil, unrecognized by the Catholic Church, and the people involved in the contraband of harm-reduction products.
#SAFER is born from the desire of highlighting the stories of thousand of advocates for harm reduction around the world, who fight every single day for the human right to the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health possible. For people using nicotine, alcohol, or other licit and illicit drugs, harm reduction offers and unprecedented approach based on empathy, understanding and love.
” Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind. ” Peter 3:8
