The Hungry Heart Movie wins the American Society of Addiction Medicine’s 2015 Media Award

 The documentary film The Hungry Heart produced by Kingdom County Productions and directed by Bess O’Brien was granted the 2015 Media Award by the American Society of Addiction Medicine last week.

 The American Society of Addiction Medicine is a national medical society representing more than 3200 physicians and associated professionals dedicated to increasing access and improvement to addiction treatment across the United States.

 ASAM stated in its award letter that the film was being honored because of “its unflinching perspective of the prescription drug and opiod addiction epidemic seen through the eyes of physician Fred Holmes and the many brave folks in the movie struggling with this disease.”

 The prestigious honor will be awarded to director Bess O’Brien at the ASAM national conference in Austin, Texas in April of 2015.

 The Hungry Heart continues to tour across New England and beyond. Recently, the film was just screened in Alaska by the American Academy of Pediatrics and was featured in Littlerock, Arkansas at the Attorney General’s Opiate Summit.
