In 2005, while filming a documentary TV show in Woonsocket, R.I., Chester and his crew discovered two homeless alcoholics living in the woods who had been missing from their families for years. The filmmakers’ offer to assist the men in getting their lives back on track sets into motion a profound series of events that tested the faith of everyone involved. What happened revealed the power of a simple helping hand extended to two men seemingly beyond any hope of redemption. “Lost in Woonsocket” is a gritty, real-life story of love, faith and forgiveness, a testimonial to saving the world—one life at a time.
With support from the Maine Community Foundation, the Belfast Creative Coalition and Restorative Art Works will present “Lost in Woonsocket” at the Crosby Center on Monday, July 8 at 7:00 pm.
We have invited Norman Cartier, the protagonist in the film to join us here that evening to talk about his amazing redemption and recovery for being “lost” to have a full life.
The tickets are $15 and will help cover the costs of bringing Norman to Belfast for an unforgettable evening.
