Charity Screening of Daniel Baldwin's WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE, Cast Q&A and Red Carpet Party

Pepperdine University’s Elkin’s Auditorium

24255 Pacific Coast Hwy, Malibu, 90263

5:00pm to 9:30pm

Join writer/director Daniel Baldwin at a special screening, and Q&A with cast members, of his award-winning film The Wisdom to Know the Difference. Written and directed by Baldwin, the film stars Lou Diamond Phillips; Mayra Leal; Elle LaMont , Maggie Wagner, Burton Gilliam and William “Billy” Baldwin.

Based in part on actual events, Wisdom is a story about a man’s journey to bring his sobriety full circle. ‘Bob’ (Daniel Baldwin) a former addict and convict, is asked by an old friend (Lou Diamond Phillips), to help a young woman (Mayra Leal) kick a serious drug problem by any means necessary. Despite pressure from a family member (William Baldwin) to stay on the straight and narrow, ‘Bob’ puts his own life at risk and faces tremendous dangers in order to help save a young woman’s life.

The film which is being hailed as the “best recovery film of all time” has won best picture at the Long Beach International, San Antonio, Burbank International Film Festival and Manhattan International Film Festivals, and is an official selection at the upcoming Ft. Lauderdale Film Festival and Big Apple Festival. “This film is near and dear to me,” states Daniel Baldwin, who has been sober for years. “There are millions of Americans who suffer from addiction and if we can reach just one person with this film, it would be the biggest reward ever.”

The Black Keys - Turn Blue World Tour

The Forum

Inglewood, 90305


Guitarist/singer Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney make up the blues rock powerhouse that is The Black Keys. The duo has come a long way from their early days recording in an Akron, Ohio, basement to their current ability to sell out tickets to a Madison Square Garden concert in just 15 minutes.
After their 2002 debut dubbed “The Big Come Up,” The Black Keys developed an underground following which they satiated with intimate tours and new releases every couple years. The 2010 unveiling of “Brothers” marked the start of their commercial success, as tracks like “Howlin’ for You” and “Tighten Up” received regular rotation on Top 40 stations nationwide. Not to mention the three Grammy Awards the group took home for Best Alternative Music Album, Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for “Tighten Up” and Best Recording Package.
