OCEANA - A movie that worried the Wyoming County town of Oceana will be available to the public on DVD and for rental downloads starting July 1.

"Oxyana's" director Sean Dunne won a special jury mention at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year.  People in Oceana have not seen it yet, but local residents, state officials, a federal prosecutor, U.S. Senator, and Congressman have already denounced it.  

The movie focused on the region's prescription drug abuse epidemic.  Dunne said there's an urgent need to spread awareness of the problem.  He hoped the film triggered a national conversation about it.
