Local filmmaker tells stories of opioid addictions through new documentary


LEAVITTSBURG, Ohio (WKBN) – Markus McFolling is one of five people featured in the film “Death to Life.” 

“I don’t think I was necessarily a drug addict to start. I was physically dependent, but then I was psychologically depressed, so you mixed those two, and you got a completely deceived drug addict,” McFolling said.

The film gives a first-hand look at how the opioid epidemic affects many families in the U.S., and more specifically, right here in the Mahoning Valley.
