A Cool Thing You Shouldn’t Miss: IFF screening of ‘How to Make Money Selling Drugs’

Do you like relevant documentaries? Do you like Entourage? Do you like learning about the drug trade? Do you like Woody Harrelson? If you answered yes to any of the above, be sure to check out Ivy Film Festival’s screening of How To Make Money Selling Drugs on Wednesday at 7:30 in List 120.

How to Make Money Selling Drugs is a powerful documentary that traces the drug trade in the United States from street-level dealers to high-profile politicians and DEA agents. If you thought Breaking Bad taught you everything you needed to know about modern drug politics, think again. The film was produced by Adrian Greniere of Entourage fame, and features interviews with Susan Sarandon, Woody Harrelson, 50 Cent, and Eminem. Obviously, if that many celebrities are involved, it must be important.

The screening will be followed by a panel featuring several Brown professors and alumni with extensive knowledge of the modern American drug culture and firsthand experience in the field. Check out the Facebook event for more information.
