Abstract
Flipping the world is a half-hour film inspired by Through a blue lens, and was created for a younger audience. Seven Vancouver high school students investigate drug addiction as they talk to police officers and watch video clips from Through a blue lens. The teens also talk to recovered addicts and people still struggling with a drug habit. The culturally diverse group of teenagers voice a range of opinions about addiction that evolve as they learn more about the tragedy of drug abuse. A user' guide is printed on the videojacket.
