Free and Open to the Public

Event Invitation and RSVP: https://theanonymouspeoplelynn.eventbrite.com

The Anonymous People is a feature documentary film about the over 23 million Americans living in long-term recovery from addition to alcohol and other drugs.  Deeply entrenched social stigma and discrimination have kept recovery voices silent and faces hidden for decades.  The vacuum created by this silence  has been filled by sensational mass media descriptions of people  in active addiction that continue to perpetuate a lurid public 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 leaders, volunteers, corporate executives, 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 is fueling a changing conversation that aims to transform public opinion, and finally shift problematic policy toward lasting recovery solutions.

The Anonymous People screening is the kickoff event for the first Frames Debate Project debate that will take place in Lynn, Massachusetts in January 2015. Frames Debate Project is a multimedia policy debate series created by cisual artist Tomashi Jackson and policy analyst Nia Evans to explore the intersections of inadequately provided mental health care, addiction and drug policy in major cities in Massachusetts.
