Description

I Am Not Afraid

(Fadi Hindash, Netherlands, 2017, 90 minutes, North American Premiere)

OFFICIAL TRAILER

At 71, Dr. Frederik Polak leads a full life: he has friends, grandchildren, a loving wife and the wide respect of his psychiatric colleagues. So why then does he decide to assist one of his oldest patients – a woman who has struggled with mental health issues her entire – when she decides to commit suicide? As genial and generous as Dr. Polak appears on the outside, it says something about the power of Fadi Hindash's I Am Not Afraid that we can't help but wonder what's going on behind the psychiatrist's warmly paternal facade. At once intensely intimate and universal, the film focuses on the doctor's intricately complicated relationship with his troubled patient, but it sees much more. The questions raised are put to every one of us.

*Playing with When Grey is a Colour (Marit Weerheijm, Netherlands, 2016, 24 minutes)

*Panel discussion to follow screening with Lucy Costa (Empowerment Council), Kevin Reel (Ethicist, U of T professor) and Dr Justine Dembo (U of T professor of psychiatry, Dying with Dignity)

Co-presented with The Empowerment Council adn Distress Centre
