Film Streams Presents “Running From Crazy”


On October 7th, Film Streams will be hosting a Special Screening of “Running From Crazy,” which  will be followed by a panel discussion. The event precedes The Kim Foundation’s October 22 “A Time for Hope and Healing” luncheon, when Mariel Hemingway, the subject of “Running From Crazy,” will be the keynote speaker.

The documentary explores mental illness and its impacts through the lens of the Hemingway family. Academy Award-nominated actress Mariel Hemingway knows of seven family members – including her grandfather, Ernest, and sister, Margaux – who committed suicide. After years of trying to run from her family’s history she has become outspoken about her own struggle with depression and has established herself as an advocate for mental health. Produced by Oprah Winfrey and directed by two-time Academy Award winner Barbara Kopple (Harlan County, USA and American Dream), “Running From Crazy” is a thought-provoking reminder about an issue that touches people from all walks of life.

Following the film, a panel composed of mental health experts and community members affected by mental illness will discuss issues presented in the documentary.

Tickets are available for purchase now on Film Streams‘ web site.
