On Thursday October 13th Young People in Recovery invites community members, advocates, and stakeholders to join us for a screening of the feature documentary film Tipping the Pain Scale. Free Cafe will be open at 5:30. About The Film A Vivifi Films Production Directed by two-time Emmy winner, Jeff Reilly; the Producer of The Anonymous People and Generation Found, Greg Williams; and Executive Producer, Tim Grant: The addiction crisis in America has reached a new boiling point, and courageous people – at all levels, from all walks of life – are rising to answer the call. TIPPING THE PAIN SCALE is a feature documentary film following individuals grappling with the current systemic failures of how we have dealt with addiction in communities and their journey to develop and employ new, innovative, and often controversial solutions to the problem. It is a quasi-anthology, weaving characters through their own stories as they connect to the issues plaguing all communities and the country in an urgent fight to save lives. Featuring U.S. Secretary of Labor, Marty Walsh; NFL Pro Bowl Player, Darren Waller; Spoken Word Artist Joseph Green; WA State Representative, Lauren Davis; Community Outreach Volunteer, Roz Pichardo; and Boston Police Officer Josh De La Rosa, with Music from Sia. _______________________________________________________________________________ Special thanks to our community partners that have helped make this special screening possible to celebrate, support, and highlight the work being done to change the trajectory of the addiction crisis in Colorado.
