THE FIX – THE HEALING IS MUTUAL
By Laura Naylor
Winner of the Jury Prize for Best Documentary at the 2014 SOHO International Film Festival, The FIX follows the story of a group of recovering injection drug users in the Bronx who join forces to fight the Hepatitis C epidemic in their community. Knitting together personal narratives with a profile of innovative programs at a methadone clinic, the film explores the concept of storytelling as an instrument of change and gives a powerful voice to a marginalized population. The FIX is ultimately a personal story of redemption and hope, putting a human face on addiction and disease with sensitivity and grace.
Event is free and open to the public.
Panel discussion and appetizer buffet will follow film.
Please reserve your space at Eventbrite
Doors open at 6:00 | Film begins at 6:30
