Dir. Kenneth Paul Rosenberg | Documentary | U.S.A. | 2019 | 1 hr. 26 min.
Discussion to follow with film subject Patrisse Cullors, co-founder of Black Lives Matter, producer Peter Miller, and director Kenneth Paul Rosenberg
Psychiatrist, author, and filmmaker Kenneth Rosenberg explores a major social crisis of our time—the lack of adequate care for the mentally ill. His deeply personal film follows several individuals, including Monte, a gentle giant caught in the endless, ineffective cycle, and his devoted sister Patrisse Cullors, who during filming becomes a co-founder of Black Lives Matter. Shot over five years, Bedlam shines a light on the deep-seated shame, stigma, and political negligence that have led to one of America’s largest health catastrophes.
