Statement from Jarecki of his approach to Crisis

I’ve always been interested in films with multiple storylines, films told from different perspectives where the stories cross. There are classics of that form that inspired me like 21 Grams and, of course, Traffic.  I’ve also been affected by the opioid epidemic personally through friends and their difficulties and learned that the issues are complicated and often misunderstood. When I started to write this film, I felt that I needed to explore the many aspects of this topic through different characters and emotions – I had to do it in a way that could look at the whole landscape of how it runs through society. The multi-narrative approach just seemed to fit.
