Director: Olly Lambert | Producer: Olly Lambert
Focus Years: 2012 | Country: United Kingdom
For the last two years of his life, Ben Rogers documented the two very different sides of his life. On the one hand, the loving son and brother he was desperate to be, on the other, his life as a heroin addict spinning out of control. He died leaving behind 30 hours of startling video footage. This film, made with the cooperation of Ben's family, uses the tapes Ben left behind to piece together how a bright young man could get sucked into a fatal addiction.
