PROTEST PSYCHIATRY – My Newest Film, Free!
I just made a new film, called PROTEST PSYCHIATRY, on the psychiatric survivor-lead protest of the American Psychiatric Association’s annual meeting in New York City. And I’m thrilled by how it turned out. For starters, I filmed it on no budget whatsoever, created the entire film in three days, and have uploaded it straight to Youtube, so it’s freeeeeee!
This film, for me, was an experiment. I have been feeling lost as a filmmaker for the past year or more. I think the big reason has been the process: it’s huge and expensive and time-consuming. Each film has absorbed months, literally months, of my life. Well, all that changed five days ago.
Five days ago (May 2) I was hit with the inspiration bug: to make a film a new way.
