Bobbi Jo: Under the Influence Preview Screening
February 10 @ 6 PM
The Sheen Center will host a free preview screening of Bobbi Jo: Under the Influence. RSVP to the Eventbrite here to receive an email with a link to screen the film from the comfort of your own home between 6:00 p.m. and midnight on Wednesday, February 10th.
Bobbi Jo: Under the Influence is a powerful, inspiring film about recovery, redemption, and the transformation of a neighborhood. Bobbi Jo Reed is a hero and a mother to the broken, forgotten, abandoned, and abused. One by one, Bobbi Jo reaches a hand down into the darkness and pulls her children into the light. With love, a hug, a safe place to live, and a program for recovery, Bobbi Jo has helped thousands of homeless addicts off the streets, rehabilitating lives and transforming a community.
To understand her story, we must first meet the woman who knew a time in which she was just as lost in the darkness as any individual she has helped. Addicted to alcohol and drugs, she lived on the street and prostituted her body. She was kidnapped, beaten, raped, cut open, and left for dead. When it couldn’t get any darker, Bobbi Jo was called to Christ.
This powerful documentary follows Bobbi Jo Reed into and out of her own personal hell, celebrates her salvation, and shows how she is using both of those experiences to minister to more than 7,000 souls who now call her, “Mom.”
Capacity is limited. So we encourage you to register with Eventbrite to view this soaring narrative of redemption told through the lens of this remarkable woman’s life. If you’re inspired by the movie and would like to learn more, we will be sharing a talkback with the filmmakers and Bobby Jo herself on February 12.
If you have any difficulties or questions about this screening on February 10th, please email Ryan Parker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that this film contains descriptions of substance abuse and physical and sexual abuse that may be triggering for some viewers or inappropriate for children under 13. While not gratuitous, Bobbi Jo does describe in some detail her experiences of homelessness and addiction before turning her life around.
