Inspiration has a way of being contagious and such is the case with a community in Houston, Texas that rose up together to face the problem of youth addiction head on. The community’s unprecedented efforts inspired filmmakers Greg Williams and Jeff Reilly to tell their story through the powerful documentary called GENERATION FOUND. The film is an intimate look at how a system of treatment centers, sober high schools, alternative peer groups, and collegiate recovery programs can exist in concert to intervene early and provide a real and tested long-term alternative to the “War on Drugs.” It is not only a deeply personal story, but one with real-world utility for communities struggling with addiction worldwide. In this case, inspiration continues to pay it forward, as the film has served as a catalyst for singer-songwriter Matt Butler’s new single, “Just One,” an original song written for GENERATION FOUND premiering today on Billboard.com.
Generation Found will have its New York City premier on Wednesday December 14th at SVA Theater located at 333 West 23rd Street. Truly an event not to be missed, there will be a reception, a Q&A with a stellar set of panel speakers including the film’s creator Greg Williams, Generation Found stars Sasha Coles McLean and Emilio Parker, and recovery leader Courtney Lowell and Joe Shrank. Matt Butler will be performing “Just One” live over the end credits.
