A man refuses all assistance from his daughter as he ages. As he tries to make sense of his changing circumstances, he begins to doubt his loved ones, his own mind and even the fabric of his reality.
Select your seats based on the number of people attending the theatre. For example, if you are a couple, please select a pair of chairs, and if you are a group of four, please choose a group of four.
Part of the CIne-Psych series!
Opening comments by Dr. Kim Ng. Poetry reading by Matthew MacArthur.
The Cine-Psych film making project was started in 2017 by Dr Nadeem Akhtar, a Psychiatrist, film-maker and Associate Professor at McMaster University. The aim of the project was to generate an educational community dialogue about Mental Health conditions by creating bespoke metaphorical, film depictions informed by those with lived experience. Despite filming and Cine-Psych events being placed on hold during the Covid-19 Pandemic, the team (comprised of Psychiatry residents and Medical students) remained dedicated to their vision.
Please join the Cine-Psych team, our community partners, the McMaster department of Psychiatry & Behavioural Neurosciences and Department of Social Work as we present a multi-arts series exploring the realities of mental illness vs mental wellness. Our series will include feature films followed by expert panel discussion; bespoke poetry readings from local writers; and a first of its kind “stage and screen” event where a live action play will bridge two original Cine-Psych shorts.
