Darren Aronofsky, who’s directed films like “Requiem for a Dream” and “Black Swan,” has been tapped to create a series of anti-meth PSAs for The Meth Project. If the first two videos are any indication of what’s to come, the campaign is guaranteed to raise awareness.
The first video shows an older sister who promises to just try meth once, and we watch her devolve into an addict who then enables her younger sister to follow suit. The second depicts a group of worried friends dropping off a meth user at the hospital before speeding off. Both are graphic, hard-hitting and quite disturbing.
The Meth Project was funded by a grant from the Thomas and Stacey Siebel Foundation, according to Bitten and Bound. Do you think Darren Aronofsky’s PSAs will help fight meth addiction?
