Story: Alcohol

Alcoholics Anonymous

This short film was prepared in 2010 to profile Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of its founding in the United States in 1935. AA has been operating in New Zealand since 1948. This film shows how AA uses weekly meetings to allow members to tell their stories and obtain mutual support for their battle against addiction to alcohol.
