Following a successful first year in 2014, the 2nd Recovery Street Film Festival is launched today, with the theme ‘My Story’. It is a competition for people to tell their stories through film of how they achieved recovery from substance dependence.
The Festival has been organised by a partnership of drug and alcohol treatment providers and charities including: Angelus Foundation, Phoenix Futures, Turning Point, Action on Addiction, CRI, Addaction and Blenheim CDP. Link here >>>
This film portrays a London headshop, which sells ‘legal highs’ on the high street. The message is that these ‘legal high’ products are manufactured in a haphazard and inconsistent manner with little regard for the welfare of the customer. The film actors are stand-up comedian, Jeff Leach, and Irwin Sparkes, lead singer for the rock band, the Hoosiers.
