"Bill W" The Man Behind Alcoholics Anonymous
Most people have heard of "AA" or Alcoholics Anonymous. The international program is credited with helping thousands of alcoholics recover from their addiction. It's membership totals two million worldwide.
But not many outside of AA know about the man who co-founded the organization. His name was Bill Wilson. A documentary about him opens Friday in New Haven at Bow Tie Criterion Cinemas.
WNPR's Lucy Nalpathanchil spoke with Co-Producer and Director of the film, Kevin Hanlon.
