Take Your Pills(2018)

"Alternately characterised as an epidemic or a love affair, prescription stimulants like Adderall, Vyvanse and Ritalin have become a $13 billion industry in America. These drugs increase dopamine and adrenaline levels, promising a dose of performance enhancement for our hyper-competitive age. Take Your Pills applies a personal lens to the rise of Adderall and drugs like it, and places individual experiences within a larger socio-economic and historical framework. By incorporating various animation styles, graphics and archival, the film raises vital questions about our society today and where we are headed." (South by Southwest Film Festival)Hide
