Film Forum Special Event: Bill W.

Catch the one-night-only screening of this moving, inspiring documentary

From his first fateful drink in 1917, William Wilson seemed set on a course of boozy highs, binges, and blackouts. Nearly two decades and countless drinks later, with his life in shambles, Bill made another life-changing decision. Instead of ordering another drink, he called another drunk. Their conversation laid the foundation for the program model that became one of the most famous and effective in history-Alcoholics Anonymous.
Although Bill dealt with alcoholism, drug addiction and depression to the very end of his life, the anonymous 12-step support and recovery program that emerged from his personal struggles has served as a salvation for millions.
The Saratoga Film Forum is offering a one-time screening of Bill W. this Saturday, April 13th, at 7:30 pm, at its theater in the Saratoga Arts Center at 320 Broadway. A panel-led discussion about addiction in Saratoga will follow the film; so don't miss this one-night only opportunity!
The post-film panel includes Gail Capabianco, in recovery herself and a long-time worker in the alcohol and substance abuse fields and Dr. Raymond F. Angelini, a Saratoga clinical psychologist with extensive experience working with alcohol and substance abuse. Dale Willman of the Saratoga Wire will moderate.
Admission is $5 for students.
