"Silence on the Streets" Documentary
Rob Lawlor Jr., Drug Intelligence Officer, NEHIDTA:
Over the last year, Anna Gasinski and I (the CT-ORS Team) have been working with an incredible team, Sharece Sellem-Hannah A.A. B.S., David L. Trapasso Jr., Andrew Breunig, and Film Haven Productions on a documentary titled "Silence on the Streets." We are proud to announce the official trailer.
"Silence on the Streets" is a ground-breaking documentary that explores the journey of addiction through the perspective of inner-city minorities and Native Americans. Award-winning Playwright Sharece Sellem skillfully intertwines personal narratives with expert insights from the fields of addiction, trauma, psychology, prevention, and harm reduction alongside individuals with firsthand experiences, uncovering the many factors that contribute to the distinct life experiences of black, brown, Latin X, and Native Americans, profoundly shaping their struggles with addiction throughout their lifetimes and their road to recovery.
The documentary will be available in January of 2024. The documentary's intent is to invite community members to have meaningful conversations and to serve as a catalyst for change in how we perceive and address addiction within marginalized communities. If your school, organization, and/or community would like to host a screening along with a panel/community conversation about the key points addressed in the film, don't hesitate to get in touch with Robert Lawlor at firstname.lastname@example.org or Anna Gasinski at email@example.com
