Behind the Orange Curtain and Beyond

Have you ever attended a film festival? Many take place throughout the world. Some are more famous than others. If you are lucky enough to live near where a festival takes place you can enjoy various activities and see inspiring independent films. Such was the case at the 2012 Newport Beach Film Festival. This year one particular film Behind the Orange Curtain played to sold out crowds and chronicled 15 Orange County California families examining the abuse of prescription drugs.

This is Brent Huff's first documentary to play on the big screens. He filmed the entire movie in Orange County communities, like Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Costa Mesa, Laguna Beach, San Clemente and Dana Point. He hoped this film will serve as a way for parents and teachers to start the conversation with their children. And not just with their teen-agers, but their younger children as well. As Mr. Huff said: "It's not like pot where you can smell it, or alcohol where you can see it. It's not cocaine with a runny nose. You can't tell they're high."

When the festival came to a close, Behind the Orange Curtain won the Orange County Filmmaker Award.

While this film features Orange County, California, remember this epidemic is in every community. Take a moment to watch the trailer. If you have an opportunity, see the film and share the message with friends. It might save a life!
