MY ANGEL WING

Greg Wing’s passion for playing his trumpet is only rivaled by his love for his wife, Paula.

Despite being a traveling and performing trumpet player, Greg’s love for Paula has never wavered. Greg first picked up the trumpet at seven, and they fell in love as teenagers. Paula’s maiden name is “Angel,” and Greg says their song is “My Special Angel.” He says, “She’s a constant awareness to me of what a good person should be.”

THE SICKNESS

On November 4, 2013, Melissa lost her 19-year-old daughter, Kali, to a heroin overdose.

Kali was raised in a middle-class family in Syracuse, N.Y. She was a painter, and on the honor roll in high school. She is not an anomaly.

Heroin is infiltrating the homes of suburban families all across Central New York. Methadone clinics have year long waiting lists, and overdoses have skyrocketed. The Sickness, a feature film by Chris Janjic and Andrew Renneisen, tells the stories of those most affected by the heroin epidemic. The film gives voice to the user who sees no way out, to the parents who have given everything to help their son, and to the mother whose daughter was robbed of her life.

SKATESCAPE

During the middle of February in Central New York, it is difficult to beat the monotony of an indoor park and find a spot that spawns creativity. "Skatescape" features the birth of such a skate spot in a long abandoned industrial building.
