I watched the trailer for the new documentary, The Anonymous People, and it took my breath away.
“This is our Black Plague”, says actor Kristen Johnston, speaking to an audience. She’s talking about addiction.
And this film is a rallying cry for changing public policy on addiction and challenging our private assumptions about the over 23 million people impacted in this country. A rush of emotion hit me at 1:04 in the clip with the words,“our country is trying to incarcerate our way out of the problem”.
Leading the charge are legions of recovering people who are finding their voices, no longer willing to live in anonymity.
The JHW Foundation, Inc., in Richmond, VA. is proud to present a screening of The Anonymous People at The Westhampton Theater on Wed., Oct. 23 at 7:30.
