  1. I deeply admire the Prism Awards and think it honors wonderful depictions of substance abuse, which is an increasing and challenging problem in the United States. I am satisfied and not surprised that White Irish Drinkers is nominated. I saw the film at the Woodstock Festival and it was a moving work with an irresistible love story that interweaves with the complexities of growing up in a family that suffers from alcohol abuse and poverty. I really encourage this film and think it will do well.
