The year is 2029. The world has become intensively information oriented and humans are well-connected to the network. Crime has developed into a sophisticated stage by hacking into the interactive network. To prevent this, Section 9 is formed. These are cyborgs with incredible strengths and abilities that can access any network on Earth.
Special Anniversary Screening of Bill W. at Camera 3 on June 10th
In celebration of the 78th anniversary of Alcoholics Anonymous, Camera 3 Entertainment will present a encore screening of the bio-doc Bill W., telling the story of Alcoholics Anonymous co-founder William G. Wilson, on Monday, June 10th at 7:00pm. View Trailer. BUY TICKETS now
William G. Wilson, co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous, is included in TIME Magazine's "100 Persons of the 20th Century." Interviews, recreations, and rare archival material reveal how Wilson, a hopeless drunk near death from his alcoholism, found a way out of his own addiction and then forged a path for countless others to follow. With Bill as its driving force, A.A. grew from a handful of men to a worldwide fellowship of over 2 million men and women – a success that made him an icon within A.A., but also an alcoholic unable to be a member of the very society he had created. A reluctant hero, Bill Wilson lived a life of sacrifice and service, and left a legacy that continues every day, all around the world.
