Oceana, WA is an old coal mining town surrounded by an amazing landscape. However, it's home to an Oxycontin epidemic. High school girls battle $800 a day habits, while families struggle to support their children, but have full prescription bottles.
Oxyana is a new documentary about Oceana by Sean Dunne, an American based director, who became widely recognised for his online documentary American Juggalo.

For this show they spent over a year perfecting a stage setting that emulated the feeling of an art installation.

In this, the 38th issue of Monster Children we have so much good stuff! We talk with Mike O’Meally about his twenty-odd-year reign in skate photography; we meet the man who coined the title ‘editor-at-large,’ Glenn O’Brien; Keith Hufnagel tells us why he won’t wear his own t-shirts; pro-surfer Warren Smith interrupts an interview to take a photo of something; and the legendary artist Kevin Ancell says, ‘Fuckin’’ nearly 50 times.
