What: A special screening of this New York Times Film Critic's pick, the documentary "Addiction Incorporated" will be shown at a special screening arranged by Jefferson/Lewis Reality Check.

Why: This film has won critical acclaim for its riveting true story of the tobacco industry's lies and attempts to silence the scientist who blew the whistle on the industry. The film shows footage of the scientist, Victor De Noble, testifying at the Congressional hearing where tobacco company executives were caught in their own web of lies. This is a strong and thought-provoking film that tobacco-prevention advocates find inspirational. The documentary, written and directed by Charles Evans, Jr., and executive produced by Charmaine Parcero, is a one hour and 20 minute fascinating look at the tobacco industry and its duplicity, as well as the heroes who proved their deception.

Who: Emily Ramos, Program Coordinator of Jefferson/Lewis County Reality Check will be available for interview following the screening to discuss the implications of the film, its impact on the tobacco education movement and answer questions about the current program goals.
