Your Recovered Life Series with Greg Williams, Filmmaker

I really like the look of Courtney Webster’s new website, where she is interviewing inspiring people in recovery. First up for us is Greg Williams, who made the film The Anonymous People. Here’s part of what Courtney has to say about this interview:

‘Last spring I was minding my own business on Facebook when I happened upon a kickstarter video that rocked my world.

Greg Williams, was talking about a film he was making called The Anonymous People (see description below). I sat at my kitchen table with my little boy on my lap and was riveted. By the time my husband had come over to see what was making me so excited, I was crying the best kind of tears. It was so inspiring.

I was raised to believe that one person’s voice can make a difference and here was this new fact for me: 23 Million Americans are living in long-term recovery. WTF?!?!

What if WE used OUR voices to start defining the conversation? The options for treatment? Put an end to the shame and stigma that, even if we don’t personally feel, exists in the world and certainly in the media? And how about this one: That living in recovery isn’t a slog but a joy and a spring board for an amazing life?  Fuck yeah!!

So when Greg agreed to speak to me for Your Recovered Life Series I was stoked! I wanted to know more about the film AND how he found his calling, duty and passion in recovery.

As an aside, I met Greg in person after this conversation and he is not only impressive and inspiring for the change he is creating in the world, but a SUPER nice guy…’
