Bobbi Jo: Under the Influence Talkback

February 12, 6:00PM

On Wednesday, February 10, 2021 The Sheen Center hosted an exclusive preview screening of the documentary Bobbi Jo: Under the Influence, a powerful film about recovery, redemption, and the transformation of an entire neighborhood. Bobbi Jo Reed is a hero and a mother to the broken, forgotten, and abused young people living on the streets. One by one, Bobbi Joe reaches a hand down into the darkness and pulls these young souls into the light. She is able to do so because she has walked in their shoes. The documentary tells the harrowing story of Bobbi Jo’s descent into addiction and her remarkable journey back, through Grace, to a life of courage, clarity, and extraordinary generosity.

You won’t want to miss this powerful talkback with filmmakers, Brent and Donna Jones, and Bobbi Jo herself tonight, Friday, February 12 at 6pm EST. 
Please note that this conversation, like the film, contains descriptions of substance abuse and physical and sexual abuse that may be triggering for some viewers and 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.
The Sheen Center’s talkbacks are available for viewing on The Sheen Center Youtube Channel @SheenCenter and are broadcast live on our Facebook Page @SheenCenter. Follow us on both platforms to stay up to date on the most recent events.
