The annual The Reel Mind Film Series presents films about various challenges surrounding mental illness and spotlights great stories of hope. On Tuesday, May 27, the Cinema Theatre (957 S. Clinton Avenue) will present "Hidden Pictures," the story of filmmaker Delaney Ruston, who after years of estrangement, reconnected with her schizophrenic father. Ruston became interested in the experiences other families had around the globe, uncovering mental health issues in India, South Africa, China, France, and the US.
The screening takes place at 7 p.m., and will be followed by a Q&A session with Ruston (via Skype) and Laurence Guttmacher, Clinical Director of Rochester Psychiatric Center, and facilitated by Christine Wagner, Executive Director at St. Joseph's Neighborhood Center. Tickets are $8 and available online at Reelmindfilmfest.com. For more information, call 444-3664, and visit the website for information on the future films in this year's series.
