Pain is a big deal for a lot of the population, with chronic pain affecting 1 out of 5 people. This has trigged an opioid crisis with no solution in sight so far…!
We attended the On a Scale of 1 to 10 movie premiere in VanCity Theatre, Vancouver last Tuesday. Directed and produced by Citrus Pie Media Group. SierraSil, sponsored the screening of this fantastic documentary addressing the issue of chronic pain offering hope to people who are affected by it.
Director Laurent Goldstein and producer Jennifer Unruh began this project two years ago, going on a journey through North America. Interviewing top experts in the industry, “who often challenge our traditional belief around chronic pain and open our minds to our bodies and its innate power to heal”(1). Our very own, Mr. Michael Bentley (President of SierraSil), was interviewed and features in this documentary.
The evening began with the meeting and mingling of sponsors, cast members and attendees. We spoke with many attendants who were there to learn more about ways of addressing pain that they may be suffering from, as well as connecting with others in our industry. Learning from each other, staying informed on the various products currently on the market, while also keeping up to date on new research and potential future discoveries.
After the meeting, mingling and welcoming comments. Our eyes and ears began on a 2 hour journey across North America and Canada with Laurent. Hearing individual’s stories and how they naturally overcame the challenges they were facing in their lives due to pain.
After the screening of the documentary, the floor opened up for a panel discussion allowing the audience to engage with the film creators and cast members. Closing the evening with a very exciting raffle, where many of the organizations and businesses in attendance generously donated gift hampers with products and/or treatments up for the grabs. The atmosphere in the room after this special event was inspiring and uplifting, knowing that there is hope for people who suffer with chronic pain, making everybody excited to be in the industry we are in.
We thoroughly enjoyed the evening and were delighted to sponsor this event. Being a local Vancouver based company ourselves with a vison to make one million people or more lead more active and healthier lives naturally. Contributing to the health and wellbeing of people in our community and society. Meeting such passionate attendants, health care practitioners and Doctors from all over the North Americas region. We were truly delighted to be part of this journey.
Thank you Laurent, wishing you every success with this documentary. If you would like to find out more on the movie premiere as it tours Canada, please feel free to reach out to us.
