“Fentanyl High” Film Screening & Panel Discussion

Amidst rising concerns among parents, health providers and educators in our community, Santa Cruz Community Health, Santa Cruz County Office of Education and local school districts will co-host a free community viewing of “Fentanyl High,” a powerful documentary film produced by LC2 Productions and directed by Kyle Santoro, a senior at Los Gatos High School.

The documentary “Fentanyl High” delves into the opioid crisis, offering an intimate exploration of its complexities through the perspectives and firsthand experiences of high school students, as captured in candid interviews.

Admission is free, registration is required and space is limited. Attendance by teens, ideally with their families, is encouraged.

Immediately following the screening, there will be a discussion panel featuring the student filmmaker, local professionals, and high school peers.

Families will leave the event with concrete steps for both prevention and support around this issue. Attendees will receive ‘Let’s Talk’ booklets, a toolkit for navigating teen substance use for parents and caregivers and tip sheets identifying the signs of an overdose. School nurses will be distributing free Naloxone (Narcan), a life saving medication, after the screening.
