Recovery City is a documentary focusing on women in recovery in Worcester. The film follows four women in various stages of recovery who are telling their stories in overlapping first-person narratives.  Recovery City is described by the director as follows “At its core, a comeback story. One of strength and resilience. A story of overcoming rather than succumbing.”

Please join us to view a rough cut of the first hour of the film, followed by a panel session with myself, the filmmaker, and the women Recovery City.  This screening is also a fundraiser and designed so that the audience can provide written feedback after the film.

Please check out the trailer: You may recognize the folks in the film:  Officer Janis Bianculli, Rebecca Zwicker, Bridget Del Rio and Christine Maider!  Recovery City Trailer.
