Holy Family will host the Philadelphia pre-release screening of the feature documentary film "The Anonymous People" at 7 pm on Thursday, May 23 in the University's Campus Center. Tickets to see the film are $15 in advance, $20 at the door. A panel discussion with the filmmakers will follow the screening.
The documentary is about the 23.5 million Americans living in long-term recovery, and the emerging public recovery movement that will transform how alcohol and other drug problems are dealt with in our communities.
"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 public policy toward lasting solutions.
A catered VIP Reception will be held prior to the screening at 6 pm and will offer attendees an opportunity to talk with business leaders, legislators, experts in the field, the filmmaker and others.
Tickets to VIP Reception and film are $75. To purchase tickets for the reception or the film, go to http://www.councilsepa.org/index.php.
