The New Milford Youth Agency and the New Milford MCCA will co-sponsor a free screening of "The Anonymous People" March 30 from 6 to 8 p.m.
"The Anonymous People" is a feature documentary film about the 23.5 million Americans living in long-term recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs.
The film sheds light on the personal and societal value of recovery through the moving stories of people who have gone public with their recovery.
Williams, who is in long-term recovery from drug and alcohol addiction, is an award-winning documentary filmmaker and an accomplished producer and editor with broadcast experience on various ESPN, A&E, Documentary Channel and History Channel projects.
Williams is a public recovery advocate who has spoken to legislative bodies and has been featured in news stories surrounding youth addiction recovery by "ABC World News," NBC News, Family Circle magazine and The Hartford Courant.
In 2010, Williams was awarded a Silver Telly Award for "Central Pride," the story of a grassroots prevention and recovery support program in a Bridgeport inner-city high school.
