“Lost in Woonsocket” to Benefit Recovery Supports in Hancock County
Ellsworth – On Wednesday, July 10, 2019, Healthy Acadia and Your Place, Inc., with support from MDI Hospital, will host a screening of the documentary film, “Lost in Woonsocket” at the Moore Community Center in Ellsworth.
“Lost in Woonsocket,” directed by John Chester, follows Chester and Andre Miller, co-creators of the A&E Network documentary series, “Random 1” as they attempt to help Mark and Normand, two homeless persons from Woonsocket, Rhode Island who are struggling with alcoholism, begin their recovery journey.
When the “Random 1” series is cancelled, Normand’s children contact Chester and Miller, and persuade them to continue documenting their father’s journey to long-term recovery. “Lost in Woonsocket” offers a candid exploration of the complex personal and societal challenges faced by those seeking recovery from substance use disorder.
Doors will open at 5:00pm and the film will begin at 5:30pm, followed by a Q & A session with a very special surprise guest. A $10 suggested donation at the door will benefit Your Place, Inc. and Healthy Acadia’s Recovery Support Fund in Hancock County. Light refreshments will be served, and a raffle will be held with proceeds benefiting the Hancock County Recovery Support Fund.
