About the Film
From award-winning director Ondi Timoner (Dig!, We Live in Public), comes Coming Clean, a feature documentary examining addiction through the eyes of recovering addicts and political leaders, as they come together to bring the profiteers to justice and rebuild in the wake of the deadliest drug epidemic in our history. 

Since 1999, almost 450,000 people have died from an overdose involving any opioid, including prescription and illicit opioids. The devastation to individuals, families, friends, businesses caused by this addiction is incalculable and begs the questions: why did this happen, who is responsible and how do we solve this problem?

Director Ondi Timoner has the rare distinction of winning the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival twice – for her 2004 documentary, DIG! and We Live In Public (2009). Both films were acquired by MoMA, NY for their permanent collection. Other award-winning feature-length films include The Nature Of The Beast (1994), Join Us (2007), Cool It (2010), and Brand: A Second Coming (2015).

Coming Clean is supported by the Utah Film Center’s Fiscal Sponsorship program, which has supported the production of over 250 films since the program’s inception in 2008.
