College of the Atlantic senior Ursa Beckford will host a screening of his film, Something Good Will Come of This: A Maine Man’s Journey through the Opiate Epidemic, at the Blue Hill Public Library on Wednesday, July 19th at 7:00 PM. The film will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker, Ursa Beckford, and the subject of the film, Mike Bills.
Ursa Beckford created this short documentary for his senior project at College of the Atlantic. The film tells the story of a recovering heroin addict from Downeast Maine, Mike Bills, capturing Mike’s struggle with addiction and his remarkable recovery. While the drug crisis is devastating families and communities across the country, Mike’s story offers hope and insight into how we can effectively address the crisis.
