When: Thu., Oct. 4, 7-9 p.m.
Grace Centers of Hope will host the red carpet, public premiere of the documentary film, Thirteen One, on Thurs., Oct.4 with 2 showings, 7pm and 8:30pm only at the Landmark Main Art Theatre in the heart of Royal Oak, Michigan.
Thirteen One chronicles the lives of six men and women who were in recovery from heroin addiction when they decided to train for the 2017 Brooksie Way Half Marathon in Rochester, Michigan. As with all stories of addiction and recovery, some were successful and some were not. The film is meant to engage in the national conversation of drug overdose and addiction awareness.
Fighting a heroin addiction alone can be a daunting task and each quickly learned about the striking similarities and challenges between recovery and training.

Thirteen One is a documentary directed by Kyle Couch.
Couch grew up creating films and had his first experience with production in High School. He had joined the school news production team and fell in love. After interning at the local community college on a documentary, he knew creating films would become his lifelong goal. After high school, he spent time writing his own scripts. In 2011 he began attending Oakland Community College, enrolled in the Cinematic Arts program. In 2012 he began working with a local ministry to create short films and video content for the congregation. It was through this practice that Kyle began sharpening his skills, as a storyteller and with the technology needed, to bring those stories to life. He went on to direct two award-winning short films for the ministry, One Last Run, and The Eulogy. Kyle still works with the church to bring stories of hope and redemption to the screen. His most recent effort, Life Prescribed, won him a nomination for Best Director at the Global Impact Film Festival in Washington D.C. He lives in Michigan with his lovely wife Virginia and is hard at work on two feature films.
