A Summer in the Cage: An Inside Look at Bipolar Disorder
This unique collaboration between a filmmaker and the subject of his work captures a personal battle with bipolar disorder while addressing the filmmakerís role in documenting mental illness. At his friend Samís request, Ben Selkow turned the lens on Sam when Samís disturbing behavior led to a diagnosis of bipolar disorder. Sam speaks candidly about living with the disease and describes its phases as he experiences them on camera. As Samís story unfolds, Selkow is forced to consider the ethical responsibilities of a documentary filmmaker witnessing his subjectís distress. The program includes illuminating commentary from Dr. Kay Redfield Jamison.
