July 11, 2018
Doors Open: 7:00 PM
Maine is one of the states hardest hit by the nation’s ongoing opioid crisis, but people across the Midcoast region are working on the front lines of this epidemic, saving lives, raising awareness, and developing new solutions.
Points North Institute and Coastal Healthcare Alliance are partnering to organize a midcoast Maine tour of Oscar-nominated director Elaine McMillion Sheldon’s RECOVERY BOYS. Each free screening will be followed by a community forum featuring Elaine and local leaders in healthcare, law enforcement, recovery and community services.
ABOUT THE FILM
In the heart of America’s opioid epidemic, four men attempt to reinvent their lives and mend broken relationships after years of drug abuse. RECOVERY BOYS, from Academy Award nominated director Elaine McMillion Sheldon, is an intimate look at the strength, brotherhood, and courage that it takes to overcome addiction, laying bare the internal conflict of recovery.
This screening is co-presented by the Camden Opera House and is free and open to the public.
