The Anonymous People – Film Screening and Discussion
The Anonymous People is a feature
documentary film about the more than 23 million Americans living in long-term
recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs.
entrenched social stigma have kept recovery voices silent and faces hidden for
decades. The vacuum has been filled with sensational mass media depictions of
people with addiction that perpetuate a lurid fascination with the
dysfunctional side of what is a preventable and treatable health condition.
story of The Anonymous People is told
through the faces and voices of citizens, leaders, volunteers, corporate
executives, public figures, 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 aims to transform public opinion, engage communities and elected
officials, and finally shift problematic policy toward lasting solutions.
