Three Movies One Dialogue

We are pleased to announce that in collaboration with community partners we are bringing to you a series of three events: Three Movies One Dialogue.

Three Independent movies sharing =different perspectives on human experiences clinicians call “serious mental illness” but you don’t have to.
Each event will also include a dialogue with invited guests and opportunity for questions.



One series, three evenings, three movie screenings, each movie independently produced, each screening including a panel of invited guests.

We invite you to a dialogue: a conversation with a centre and no sides, sharing many perspectives and world views on what often gets called “serious mental illness”.

Three Movies


HEALING VOICES is a feature-length documentary examining experiences commonly labeled as ‘psychosis’ or ‘mental illness’ in society, and a critical look at America’s broken mental health care system.

Director: PJ Moynihan





Crazy…or wise? Ancient wisdom of indigenous cultures often contradicts modern views about a mental health crisis. Is it a ‘calling’ to grow or just a ‘broken brain’? The documentary CRAZYWISE explores what can be learned from people around the world who have turned their psychological crisis into a positive transformative experience.

Director:  Phil Borges




An “illness” with no “cure”, the label schizophrenia has persisted for over a century. Toronto-based filmmaker Jonathan Balasz’s film offers multiple perspectives. Is “schizophrenia” hard science? Or an arbitrary, catch-all term with no real meaning? The film weaves a series of wide-ranging interviews with voice hearers, medical historians, anthropologists and psychiatrists from Britain and America, presenting different people’s views side-by-side. The result offers a tapestry of contrasting colours.

Director: Jonathan Balasz
