Attend a special LA screening of DR. FEELGOOD: DEALER OR HEALER?, a documentary directed by Eve Marson '04, followed by a Q&A with Eve and producer Sara Goldblatt.

Dr. Feelgood: Dealer or Healer? is the story of Dr. William Hurwitz, a preeminent pain specialist sentenced to 25 years in prison for drug trafficking, providing a window into the ethical dilemma of opioid prescriptions. The film traces Dr. Hurwitz’s trial and eventual appeal, detailing the events that lead to his arrest. Testimonies from the witnesses in Dr. Hurwitz’s case contradict one another—some revere him, while others condemn him. Taken together, their accounts reveal a profile of a compassionate yet flawed doctor. The film, in telling his story, underscores the tension between every patient’s right to pain relief and the lawful need for drug control.
