Movie screening – Haze

Wednesday March 18th

7 pm

Weston Public Library Community Room

Weston Youth Services and ADAP (Alcohol and Drug Awareness Program of Weston) invite you to a special screening of Haze, a documentary about alcohol abuse on college campuses.  Haze tells the tragic story of Greenwich Connecticut native Gordon Bailey Jr. ("Gordie"), who was found dead at the Chi Psi Fraternity house at the University of Colorado at Boulder at the age of 18, just three weeks after arriving on campus.  His death occurred after “bid night” when he and other pledges were encouraged to drink and then left to sleep it off.  Haze aims to spark conversations about the role of alcohol on campus, and motivate youth to intervene in an emergency.  Following the film there will be a moderated panel discussion and Q&A session.  This film is suitable for older middle and high school students.
