Just a reminder that HIGH will premiere tonight at Columbia College Chicago’s Film Row Cinema, 1109 S. Wabash (at 11th St.) at 7:30 p.m., tickets at the door, or online.
The top Chicago blog, Chicagoist, has an interview with me up, which leads me to my next point:
Dr. Paul Heberle, one of the center-points of the film, has been arrested again on drug-related charges. I don't have the full story yet, but whenever I see the words "confidential informant" it makes my blood boil (they are usually someone who has been popped on charges and makes a deal with the prosecutor in exchange for information, which is frequently spun from whole cloth).
While my producer and I parse out what, precisely, is happening, here's a clip of Dr. Heberle from the film:
I remind everyone that Dr. Heberle was acquitted during the trial covered in the documentary. Regardless of what happens, our thoughts are with the Heberles.
