March is Brain Injury Awareness Month and our community is celebrating with an event on Saturday, March 24th (6:00-8:30pm) at the Uptown Theatre, 2014 Genesee St, Utica NY. Join us for a film screening of "Going the Distance: Journeys of Recovery."
Going the Distance: Journeys of Recovery is a hour-long character-driven documentary on survivors of traumatic brain injury (TBI) in which four survivors and their loved ones take us inside the experience of TBI to reveal their personal stories of devastation, heroism and hope. Produced and directed by three-time Emmy Award-winning filmmaker, David L. Brown, Going the Distance was described by TBI survivor and former ABC News anchor, Bob Woodruff, as “the best documentary on TBI I’ve seen yet. It’s a great piece of work.” Thirteen of Brown’s documentaries have aired on PBS and in 16 countries, and have received over 80 international awards. The film’s web site is www.goingthedistance.info.
This event is being hosted by the National Brain Injury Foundation (NBIF) http://www.facebook.com/BrainInjuryFoundation. The mission of the NBIF is to provide social support groups, advocacy, training and information to people with brain injuries and their families.
