A second showing of a documentary produced last year about Talbot Goes Purple is set for 6 p.m. on Sept. 25 at the Avalon Theatre in Easton.
Set amidst the tragic repercussions of the opioid epidemic, ‘The American Opioid Crisis:Talbot Goes Purple’ explores the partnership between law enforcement, civic leaders and the recovery community in Talbot County, as they battle the devastating effects of addiction.
The film is a production of Colorado-based Ferrari Films, with producers Denise Ferrari and Tricia Springer and their crew. The team spent several days filming in Easton last fall, and the documentary premiered Sept. 4 in Easton as part of year three’s kick off for Talbot Goes Purple. The film is in memory of Mariah Albee and all those lost to the American opioid crisis.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for the 45-minute film. The event is free, with seats available on a first-come basis. The film also airs in Colorado this month at the Breckenridge Film Festival.
An initiative from the Talbot County Sheriff’s Office and Tidewater Rotary, in partnership with Talbot County Public Schools and the Mid-Shore Community Foundation, Talbot Goes Purple empowers our youth and our community to ‘Go Purple’ as a sign of taking a stand against substance abuse.
