Tears for April – Beyond Blue Lens, the myth that drug abuse affects just the user is destroyed as life and death unfolds in Vancouver’s drug-infested Downtown Eastside. Tears For April follows the short, tragic life of April Reoch as told by recently retired beat cop, Cst. Al Arsenault warned the fresh-faced 17-year old to leave the streets, but his warnings fell on deaf ears. Within six months, April was hooked on drugs and prostituting herself. We follow April’s life-and-death struggle: from her first days on the street, to her desperate attempts to get clean, to finding her body on Christmas Say, and into jail where her murderer laments her death. Five other characters, also seen in Through a Blue Lens (1999), are woven into this compelling drama.   2009
