Finding Normal, a documentary film by Brian Lindstrom, will be shown at City Hall on Friday, February 1 at 1 PM. The showing is free.
Coming straight out of prison or detox, recovering addicts struggle to stay clean and sober in the city of Portland. Thanks to the Recovery Mentor program of Central City Concern, some will clean up their lives, but as this candidly frank documentary reveals, it is not an easy process.
Local filmmaker Brian Lindstrom is as uncompromising in his study of recovery as are the mentors who have rebuilt their lives and are now committed to helping others. What unfolds are intimate portraits of human triumph and failure.
