Directed by Sandra Luckow

Oregon 2017 100 mins. In English

Sandra Luckow’s very personal documentary chronicles her 46-year-old brother’s rare late-onset paranoid schizophrenia told, in-part, from his point-of-view with a collection of iPhone video clips he made before being committed to the Oregon State Hospital. As the two sibling’s cameras expose themselves and the staggering emotional toll of mental illness gone unchecked, a look at a health system that seeks to help while sometimes undermining its own ability to actually do so comes into focus. New York filmmaker Luckow, who grew up in Clackamas and teaches film at Yale University, will be on hand to talk about her film. Reception will take place previous to the film at 6pm.
