Selfhood, Family, and the Gift of Madness: February 23, 2023

A private screening of the documentary “Drunk on Too Much Life” followed by a panel discussion with the producers and stars of the film.

About this Event: Drunk on Too Much Life is an intimate and powerful documentary following the filmmakers’ 21-year-old daughter’s mind-opening journey from locked-down psych wards and diagnostic labels towards expansive worlds of creativity, connection, and greater meaning. On their journey, the family begins to question the widespread idea that mental illness should be understood in purely biological terms and learns the myriad ways that madness has meaning. Recovery is not a straight path to being cured but a crooked bumpy journey and series of small awakenings. Register here.
