Client: Sandler Fims, Inc.

Distributor: AIMS Multimedia

Running Time: 18 minutes

Audience: Grades 9 – 12 / Adult

Description: Four teenagers who started drinking or using other drugs at an early age share their experiences. Their dramatized flashbacks show why they started — to see what it was like, to fit in with their friends or family members, to overcome shyness. They reveal how alcohol or other drugs came to control their lives.

“ The teens are extremely articulate in discussing their problems and giving warning to viewers ... A strong point of the program is that it addresses the feelings of invincibility which young people tend to have. ”

DUII: The Price Is Too High

Client: Sandler Films, Inc.

Distributor: AIMS Multimedia

Running Time: 23 minutes

Audience: Grades 9 – 12 / Adult

Description: Dramatic vignettes reveal the life-altering legal consequences of DUII — driving under the influence of intoxicants. Three stories typify the experiences of first–time young offenders. None were involved in a collision and they weren't driving recklessly for kicks. But they were intoxicated — and dangerous behind the wheel.

“Approaches one of the nation’s most serious problems from a unique direction — the pocketbook ... This well–paced film addresses important issues in an interesting, informative manner.”

— School Library Journal

“Responsible suggestions for drinkers to follow round out this program, well–suited to both illegal and legal drivers tempted to drink and drive.”

— Booklist, American Library Association
