Tomorrow we’ll be hosting another fab civic engagement community forum, and I hope many of you will head this way. In partnership with the Red Door Clinic and many others, we will be screen Todd Ahlberg’s recent documentary, Meth.
I met with the projectionist earlier this week to do a test run of the film – I got a sneek peek at the first 25 minutes – and I was immediately interested in many of the interviewee’s stories. ‘Course, in those first 25 minutes they were only talking about their introduction to the drug and how it fueled them during many a circuit party. But as I watched I was waiting for that turning point; that point where the meth honeymoon starts to end. I was in dread of it actually. And have I mentioned how much needles freak me out? Yikes…
This is going to be a great event, so head out to the Walker tomorrow night (Wednesday, Oct. 18th @ 7:30 pm) for a film and a community forum.
(And if you’re wondering about the title of this post, it was suggested to me in jest as the title for the ongoing “Meth, Sex & Men” program series run by the HIM Program at the Red Door Clinic. For me it brings to mind the Ice Capades – sparkly leotards and fancy, feathered headdresses….)
