The Insiders: This film no longer wishes to remain anonymous
There are few pastimes more entertaining than people watching. You could probably quit your subscription to cable and be equally entertained by grabbing a seat at the food court in the mall on a daily basis. Today, though, we’re not going to advocate that you watch the anonymous people; we are going to advocate that you watch The Anonymous People.
Confused? Excellent. Let us explain – today is the premier of the award-winning documentary, The Anonymous People at Red River Theatres. The film “explores the public health crisis of addiction to alcohol and other drugs and the meteoric rise of the New Addiction Recovery Advocacy Movement,” according to a press release.
The movie will be shown at 6:30 p.m. and will be followed by a community conversation with filmmaker Greg Williams. The movie will be shown in Portsmouth, Keene, Plymouth and Manchester between now and April, but now is your chance to see it first. Or at least at the same time as a couple dozen other anonymous people.

In musical news, Tim Wildman will be at Hermanos tonight at 6:30, and jazz workshop week continues at the Concord Community Music School from 3-7 p.m. According to the school, participation is encouraged, and, lucky for you people-watchers, observation is welcome.
