The worlds first laugh-out-loud comedy about Meth addiction

After hugely positive receptions at two high profile international festivals, Oaxaca and Austin (where the film was listed as a must see among names like Susan Sarandon, James Franco and Will Ferrell and where they met with the creator of "Breaking Bad" Vince Gilligan) the film has been selected to play at the LA Comedy Festival - the largest comedy festival in the world.

Deemed too controversial for conventional cinemas “Crackheads” will be debuting in New Zealand at the prestigious Maidment theatre - a New Zealand launch made possible through the proud support of Sony.

The story follows four unlikely friends, brought together by their passion for social football, who fall victim to methamphetamine. They all have their own reasons why they succumb to the drug.

Jimmy, the used-car salesman, is an ex-criminal struggling to go straight, but he is an appalling and unscrupulous businessman. Nick is an obviously conflicted, angry and slightly racist Catholic priest who has a hidden past with the drug. Thomas, a psychologist and drug councillor, knows he is no more than a reflection of his father, organized to the point of anal, he has become painfully aware that his experience, especially around drugs, is limited to books. And Raj, the out of work, overweight actor, is drifting along aimlessly in a terrible relationship with his controlling girlfriend, Ashika.

When a worried parishioner presents Nick with a bag of meth that she found in her son’s room, the drug becomes a catalyst that sends our four friends on a disastrous, but at the same time, hilarious roller-coaster ride that will change their lives forever.

This film has been taking international audiences by storm. Don’t miss your chance to see it on the big screen.
