Going Sane | The Cary Theater | Screen: Special Showings | Indy Week
This is a past event.

Going Sane 

When: Fri., Aug. 25, 7-9 p.m. 2017
Price: $6

The Triangle's array of film series just got richer with a new one at the Cary Theater devoted to premiering works by local filmmakers. There are plans for four showings this year, the first being a screening of Going Sane, a documentary that examines the rise of mental illness amid America's robust mental-health industry. Though experts promise "safe and effective" treatments, the film demonstrates that practitioners who guide patient care often base their treatments on their personal preference rather than on best practices, eschewing the evidence-based model that the medical field has embraced for roughly a half-century. Focusing on the accounts of family members whose children are suddenly and tragically incapacitated by mental illness, the filmmakers cast an unflattering light on a widespread industry practice of excluding family from involvement in their loved one's psychiatric care, which has proven tragically counterproductive. A Q and A will follow. —David Klein
