For the 5th year in a row, Recovery Resources will partner with the Cleveland International Film Festival, in a continued effort to support the community and voice our mission. This marks the 42nd year for the annual festival, which aims to enrich and educate the Cleveland community by promoting artistically and culturally significant films from around the world. Between April 4 and April 15, 214 feature films and 250 short films from 72 countries will be screened at Tower City Cinemas (230 W Huron Road #7256, Cleveland, OH 44113).
On April 6, Recovery Resources will be at the festival to promote the film Shuttle Life, and hand out educational materials. Shuttle Life was directed by Tan Seng Kiat and filmed in Malaysia in 2017. It is set in a poor, neglected community where a young man named Qiang is desperately searching for the person who killed his six-year-old sister, while taking care of his mother who is mentally ill. The intense, captivating feature follows Qiang’s fight for justice, pride and his family’s very survival.
