Graduating at age 19 from NYU film school, Nick Jarecki began his career as the author of the best-selling book Breaking In: How 20 Film Directors Got Their Start, which introduced him to various figures in the New York independent film world, leading him to direct a documentary about indie filmmaking – The Outsider (2005). His first narrative feature as director, Arbitrage (starring Richard Gere, Susan Sarandon, Tim Roth and Brit Marling), premiered at Sundance in 2012 to international acclaim.
CRISIS, the second feature film from Nick stars Gary Odman and takes an uncompromising look at the opioid epidemic through three parallel stories inspired by real life events. A taut and alluring thriller, the tension- filled CRISIS puts a human face on the epidemic which has claimed hundreds of thousands of lives worldwide and continues to rage out of control.
