Daniel Baldwin’s San Antonio Mission: TV, Film and Sobrietynew

“My sobriety is nobody’s business,” he told the Current during an August 25 meeting at the Bauhaus Media Group studios, where he’s in post-production of the film he’s directing, Wisdom. The movie was shot in San Antonio, except for a scene in Malibu, California (“I’ll sell it as Corpus,” he laughs). He gave me the exact day of his sobriety (which I won’t share) but, after telling me “there’s a lot of lies that were written about me,” insists he won’t talk about it. Yet, little by little, he opened up and told us about how inspiring the Wisdom journey has been for him and, hopefully, others.
