COME TO THE MOVIES!

NAMI Stamford Greenwich is proud to participate in a special screening of this great new film in Greenwich! 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. Deeply entrenched social stigma has 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. The moving 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.

THE FILM FEATURES APPEARANCES BY: Kristen Johnston, Actress (‘3rd Rock’ ‘The Exes’) and Best Selling Author (‘GUTS’), Chris Herren, Former NBA Star, Former Congressmen Patrick Kennedy and Jim Ramstad, Miss USA 2006 Tara Conner, Best Selling Author William Cope Moyers, Recovery Historian and Author William White and many more. Film discussion to follow.
