CRAZYWISE FILM SCREENING
On Sunday 18th November come and join us at Lansdown Hall for the Stroud premiere of CRAZYWISE. The documentary-film CRAZYWISE explores what can we learn from those who have turned their psychological crisis into a positive transformative experience.

During a quarter-century documenting indigenous cultures, human-rights photographer and  filmmaker Phil Borges often saw these cultures identify psychotic symptoms as an indicator of shamanic potential. He was intrigued by how differently psychosis is de ned and treated in the West.

Through interviews with renowned mental health professionals including Gabor Mate, MD, Robert Whitaker, and Roshi Joan Halifax, PhD, Phil explores the growing severity of the mental health crisis in America dominated by biomedical psychiatry. He discovers a growing movement of professionals and psychiatric survivors who demand alternative treatments that focus on recovery, nurturing social connections, and  finding meaning.

CRAZYWISE doesnt aim to over-romanticise indigenous wisdom, or completely condemn Western treatment. Not every indigenous person who has a crisis becomes a shaman. And many individuals bene t from Western medications.

However, indigenous peoples acceptance of non-ordinary states of conscious- ness, along with rituals and metaphors that form deep connections to nature, to each other, and to ancestors, is something we can learn from.

CRAZYWISE adds a voice to the growing conversation that believes a psycho- logical crisis can be an opportunity for growth and potentially transformational, not a disease without a cure."
