The Family Statement (2022) Camden International Film Festival 2022

Damning portrait of the Sackler family, the family made rich by the Oxycodone. We see the family messages between the family members as they try to hammer out a statement about their liability and connection to the opioid crisis over two years. The film ends with the actual statement.

If you didn't have enough reason to hate the Sacklers, this film will push you closer to the edge as the group tries to sort out what will get them into the least amount of trouble. Its clear from the start  they knew they were in the wrong but they wanted to keep their cash.

Inter-cut with the messages are statements by people affected by drug addiction. It hammers home how much damage the family has caused.

I don't know what to say.  The Sacklers are rich evil bastards and as can be seen here, their words confirm it.

This is a must see because it reveals just  how bad rich families are.
