To outsiders, Alcoholics Anonymous is often considered a cult. Two filmmakers of diverse perspectives demystify an organization that has helped millions achieve sobriety. They embark on a rollicking road trip, exploring the Vermont childhoods of AA’s pioneers, Bill Wilson and Bob Smith.

Humorous archival footage, informative interviews and lively arguments combine to examine centuries of religious movements and laws that failed to curtail drinking. But the heart of the film is its unique access to the testimony of AA members, their identities masked by hand-drawn animation, through whom we glimpse the inner workings of an organization rarely depicted on film.

One Alcoholic to Another was produced by Eleanor Lanahan and Orly Yadin of Anonymous Productions
