Just Say Know: This profoundly personal artistic achievement follows filmmaker Tao Ruspoli's family as they explore their individual relationships to heroin and opium addiction.
Shot on two continents, this film brilliantly weaves together three generations of use, addiction, and recovery with a poetic sense of affirmation and joy and none of the self-pity so typical of this genre.
"I feel I am on solid ground with an artist who is willing to take chances, to reveal what it is like to be alive on planet earth, struggling; and an artist who has used this personal stuff to create an object which is moving, enlightening, and more human than any film I've seen in ages...Congratulations, Tao, "Just Say know" is a truly fine film (I love it, I cried, it made my own day brighter.)" -Paul Williams
