TIK & THE TURKEY
Doc, 52 mins, UK/South Africa, 2013
Director
The townships in the suburbs of Cape Town, South Africa are blighted by a highly addictive heroin-based drug called ‘unga’ which is mixed with cleaning detergents, and Crystal Meth known locally as ‘tik’ which are slowly crippling this marginalised community. Lainey Richardson’s debut documentary follows 27 year old party girl addict Analese, and her 25 year old childhood friend Trevino, who is struggling to hold his family together, having lied about his heroin addiction until he was married. TIK & THE TURKEY is the human face of an abandoned community facing a drug abuse epidemic.
