Vecchione’s episodes for National Geographic’s Breakthrough Series were chosen as the premieres for both Season 1 and 2.

Addiction: A Psychedelic Cure follows renegade researchers as they explore a controversial cure for vices: psychedelic drugs.

As producer, Vecchione imagined the characters slowly engulfed in billowing smoke; a poetic visual to convey the women overpowered by their nicotine addiction. As director, she shot actors rotating on a giant turntable in various scenes of addiction. As editor, she let the footage speak to her, shaped the journey of each character and weaved their narratives together.
