RICHMOND PREMIERE OF “THE ANONYMOUS PEOPLE”
Recovery is out – To Change the Addiction Conversation Form – Problems to Solutions
Richmond, VA (May 13, 2013) – The McShin Foundation is proud to present a preview screening of The Anonymous People: a feature-length documentary film about the 23.5 million Americans living in long-term recovery from drug and alcohol addiction, and the emerging public recovery movement that will transform how substance abuse problems are dealt with in our communities.
Deeply entrenched social stigma and mass participation in widely successful anonymous 12-Step groups have kept recovery voices silent and faces hidden for decades. The vacuum created by this silence has been filled by sensational mass media depictions of addiction that continue to perpetuate a lurid public fascination with the dysfunctional side of what is a preventable and treatable health condition. Just like women with breast cancer, or people with HIV/AIDS, courageous addiction recovery advocates are starting to come out of the shadows to tell their true stories. The moving story of The Anonymous People will be told through the faces and voices of the leaders, volunteers, corporate executives, and celebrities who are laying it all on the line to save the lives of others just like them. This passionate new public recovery movement is fueling a changing conversation that aims to transform public opinion, and finally shift problematic policy toward lasting recovery solutions.
The Anonymous People is a successful KickStarter project produced by Greg Williams and starring Bill White, Kristen Johnson, Tara Connor, Laurie Dhue, and more. For a full description and a cast list please see 2012's KickStarter Campaign: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/342545630/the-anonymous-people. Screening is hosted by the Henrico County Sheriff’s Office and will be at the Henrico Theatre at 305 E. Nine Mile Rd. Henrico, VA 23075 on May 13, 2013 at 6 p.m.
