MRV Libraries Present: Screening of Documentary Film, “The Hungry Heart”
New Date: Wednesday, February 13th, 6 pm, Big Picture Theater in Waitsfield
Join the Mad River Valley Libraries for a screening of “The Hungry Heart,” a documentary by Bess O’Brien that shares the often hidden world of prescription drug addiction and recovery. Primarily shot in Franklin County, Vermont, the film takes an intimate and powerful look at those who have been swept into the downward spiral of addiction, and highlights the struggles and hopes of recovering addicts and their quest for a better future. Matt Whalen from the Vermont Department of Health will also be on hand to help facilitate a discussion of the opioid crisis and how it manifests here in our community.
Light refreshments will be served, and the event is free and open to all. Generously sponsored by the Big Picture Theater, MRV Libraries, Capstone Community and the MRV Community Fund.
