Let Me Go!
Anne Claire Poirier, filmmaker extraordinaire, lost her daughter to heroin. Yanne, aged twenty-six, was strangled. In this haunting text, Poirier unearths her daughter's past in an effort to understand her, and to understand what pushes young people to risk their lives for the drugs they believe will set them free. This text was read during the film called Let Me Go! (National Film Board)."
