Crazywise: Rethinking Madness, Film Screening

Filmmaker Phil Borges will join us via Skype for a post film discussion.

Crazy or wise? The traditional wisdom of indigenous cultures often contradicts modern views about a mental health crisis. Is it a "calling" to grow or just a "broken brain"? The documentary CRAZYWISE explores what can be learned from people around the world who have turned their psychological crisis into a positive transformational experience. 

CRAZYWISE has screened over 90 times in more than 35 countries and has been translated by volunteers into 9 different languages. The film is connecting with a diverse range of people and professionals, from psychiatric associations and universities to peer support groups and mental health advocates.
