Filmmaker/director Greg Williams, along with special guests, will be on hand to show his film and share his own addiction experiences with the audience as he participates in a Q&A at The Ridgefield Playhouse on Friday, September 26. The enlightening evening starts at 6:00 - 7:15 p.m. with a Silent Auction;?7:30 p.m. Live Spoken World Performance from Kinetic Effect of Michigan;?8:00 p.m., Film Screening,?9:00 p.m. Q&A with filmmaker.
