A Billion For Free

Posted 7th January 2020 by Dave Cross
‘A Billion Lives’ was a celebrated cinematic first and lifted many awards and rave reviews for the powerful way it told the story of vaping and those who campaign against it. Following a select tour of some cinema theatres, the film was available for purchase or rent. Now, people in certain countries can view it for free.

The Director/Executive Producer of A Billion Lives, Aaron Biebert, said: “2019 has seen the total collapse of truth-based reporting. Things are out of control. As we've been working hard on our new movie You Don't Know Nicotine, it's been difficult to watch country after country, state after state, city after city restrict safer nicotine options for adults who smoke cigarettes.”

“In some places, their only option left is smoking cigarettes. What is going on in India? Brazil? The United States, the ‘Land of the Free’? I'm ashamed of the anti-science rhetoric being exported from the US. This is embarrassing.”

Biebert is making some New Year resolutions to redress this.

First, the final touches are being made to You Don't Know Nicotine, his latest film that investigates nicotine, set to be released in April. Secondly, The David Goerlitz Story - Becoming Winston Man is being launched on Amazon Prime.
