Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario was the setting for our newest film about the overdose crisis, Steel Town Down. It’s a small city of under 75,000 people located in northern Ontario on the Michigan border, nearby several Great Lakes. It’s a beautiful place, while relatively isolated, that sits at an intersection of classic Canadian natural landscapes and industrial grit.
Below, you’ll find some shots we took while filming the documentary, which was meant to highlight just one of the many communities across Canada and the US right now that is grappling with a rise in overdoses.
