Heroin is Good for You

Rob Thompson

Heroin addiction meets video-making in three easy steps. This sensual journey through space and time takes a provocative look at heroin addiction and failure.

Héroïnomanie et vidéographie se conjuguent ici en trois étages faciles. Ce voyage sensuel dans le temps et l'espace jette un regard provocant sur l'échec et l'héroïnomanie.
