Description

Frontiers: Documentary and Alternative Treatment

If one of the definitions of madness is doing the same thing over and expecting different results, then much of the history of mental health treatment qualifies as crazy. In this program of three short documentaries, new and radically different treatment models are experienced and assessed by the people whose opinion should matter most: those undergoing new methods of treatment. Whether it’s a shift toward independence and autonomy in Spain (Voices Against Stigma), a reclamation of indigenous practice (Mistissini Healing) or a first-person account of surviving one of the more dubious old models (Browndale), the films in this program offer a fascinating spectrum of perspectives, testimonies and alternatives to the old (and possibly mad) way of doing things.
