My 12 Step Store, the recovery book and gift store located in the heart of West Hollywood is sponsoring a special free screening of the film My Recoverist Family, as part of the 10th Annual Film Festival & Symposium 2018, produced by Writers in Treatment. The event is being presented with the generous support of Addiction Policy Forum at the Laemmle Royal Theatre located at 11523 Santa Monica Blvd., West Los Angeles, CA 90025, on Sunday, October 28, at 1 p.m.
My Recoverist Family follows an LGBT+ group from Greater Manchester on a non-linear journey through recovery from substance use. Presided over by performance artist and high wire avant-guardist David Hoyle with supporting artist Jackie Haynes, their trips around the north west culminate in a once only live arts performance at Manchester’s international arts venue HOME. Cutting between final performance and nomadic workshops, the film bears witness to these recoverists’ unique perspectives on addiction, the vitalizing power of art and friendship and on what it is that they – and we – need to recover from.
Writers In Treatment is producing the 10th Annual Los Angeles REEL Recovery Film Festival & Symposium from October 24-30, 2018.
