Opioid Generation & Hindustan (Trailer) | VICE on HBO, Season 6 Ep. 14

This week on VICE on HBO, we take a look at the opioid crisis in the U.S. and the rise of Hindu nationalism in India.

The U.S. is suffering from the highest rate of drug overdose deaths on record. Driving this public health crisis is the opioid epidemic, which claims more than 100 lives daily. But as politicians and public health officials grapple over solutions, another crisis is emerging. VICE’s Isobel Yeung travels to West Virginia to investigate a surge in child welfare cases, as opioid-addicted parents fight to keep their families together.

HINDUSTAN
In India, a wave of resurgent nationalism is transforming the nation. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his far-right political party, the BJP, have been accused of promoting policies which incite religious intolerance and violence. VICE correspondent Krishna Andavolu travels across the Hindu-majority nation to see how this cocktail of religious nationalism is affecting India’s 240 million religious minorities, most of whom are Muslim.

See it Friday at 7:30 PM and 11 PM EDT on HBO.
