“Some?” is a film is about Eva, whose addiction takes her to a nightmarish alter-world. To survive, she must decipher the hungry ghost inside a madman. Though the sirens he hears are familiar to her, allying with them could lead to disaster.
“Some?” encourages a dialog about escape from life’s discomforts. By challenging the paradigms we use to measure self worth, it forces us to see addiction as a symptom of society, and to examine our own participation, willing or not, in feeding the infection.
If you’re familiar with the work of Dr. Gabor Mate, an addiction specialist and award winning author, you’ll enjoy this dramatization of addiction.
Rather than simply point to an idyllic solution, “some?” seeks to break the stigma of addiction that blinds us from exploring how our communities can be better partners with programs of prevention, treatment, and recovery.
Through the genre of horror, “some?” forces us to consider how our own addictions to status, belief, power, and/or reputation, form the walls of a nightmarish alter-world that imprisons us all.
