I AM AN OTHER - from treatment to social integration


We often wonder what happens to people who finish a rehabilitation program and then try to integrate into society. Do they succeed?

This documentary portrays the cases of people who finished the 18 ANO program and have been sober for some years now. We watch snapshots of their lives and we listen to them talking about their efforts to find a job, to become creative, to continue or to reverse unfinished business, to face the problems bequeathed by their addiction, to build a new relationship with their parents and their children, as well as friendships and loves.


If man is not born but rather becomes someone, those people’s efforts evoke one’s at- tempt to find a new pace after any inescapable misfortune may be brought upon him.

I AM AN OTHER poster
I don't believe in charity. I believe in solidarity. Charity is so vertical. It goes from the top to the bottom. Solidarity is horizontal. It respects the other person. I have a lot to learn from other people.
