Wilkes University will host a screening of the documentary “Our American Family” from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 12, on the second floor of the Henry Student Center.

Addiction is an all-encompassing force not only in the lives of the afflicted, but also those around them. Captured at a pivotal nothing-to-lose moment over the course of a year, “Our American Family” presents a radically honest portrait of five family members grappling with the legacy of generational addiction as they fight to heal resentments and pull each other out of the deepest depths.

A panel discussion will follow the documentary screening and feature documentary participants Linda and Bryan.
