New Documentary in Production Exposes America's Drinking Problem
Saint Louis, MO - A new documentary has gone into production that poses the question, does America have a drinking problem? Patrick Branson, director of the Award Winning Documentary America's Blues, thinks so and he's determined to prove it. His new documentary, 'Please Drink Responsibly', aims to look at the way alcohol use is portrayed in the media and explore the harsh consequences that come with having a society that, not only accepts alcohol abuse, but in many ways encourages it.
Branson plans to travel all over the country and speak with leading experts in the field of alcohol use and abuse as well as the effects that alcohol advertising and promotion has on our youth and our society . The launch of there new website at www.sobermovie.com features a 1 minute teaser of the film that just went into production last month.
Branson said about the film, “I took my last drink of alcohol in October of 2014 while working on America's Blues and it wasn't until then that I realized how much alcohol is in your face. Everywhere you turn there is another advertisement telling you how great it is to drink their product and how much fun you'll have, promoting the act of binge drinking unnecessarily large amounts of alcohol. There is over one and a half billion dollars a year spent on alcohol advertising and a large portion of that is targeted towards young people. What isn't advertised is the tremendous burden on individuals, families and society this alcohol problem has, so I wanted to make a social awareness documentary that will hopefully inspire change and make people become more aware of their drinking habits and the harm they are doing to their body.”
