Photographer Euan Myles has been directing and producing a short film documenting The Calton Athletic Recovery Group; a Glasgow based group made up of recovering drug addicts and alcoholics.
The club was set up in 1985 and has helped innumerable addicts on their road to recovery ever since through weekly recovery meetings, as well as various physical activities, both of which they believe are integral in achieving and sustaining long term recovery. Their members were not only a source of inspiration for, but also appear in both Trainspotting and T2 Trainspotting, and lie close to the hearts of creators Irving Welsh and Danny Boyle.
Euan and his DOP Jonnie Lewis hope to develop the film further over the next few months, revealing the uplifting and truly awe inspiring stories of the group members, many of whom have battled (and are still battling) against seemingly insurmountable odds to turn around not only their lives, but the lives of their future generations.
