â€śThe intimacy and confessional nature of these stories are the documentaryâ€™s strength.â€ť - Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
â€śPeople with bipolar disorder are stigmatized by co-workers, employers and the health care industry, which is why itâ€™s significant hearing from them so candidly. This is intimate storytelling.â€ť â€“ Clint Oâ€™Conner, Cleveland Plains Dealer
Of Two Minds is an award-winning new documentary from the creative team behind Wordplay, Superheroes, These Amazing Shadows and The Invisible War, a 2012 Academy Award nominee for Best Documentary Feature. The film explores the extraordinary lives, struggles and successes of a few of the over five million Americans living with bipolar disorder. Personal stories of harrowing events, medical mazes, discrimination and the effects of social stigma blend together to create a compelling look at a generation coming out of the â€śbipolar closet.â€ť Of Two Minds puts an authentic human face on bipolar disorder, providing an intimate, sometimes painful, sometimes painfully funny look at those who live in its shadows: our parents and children, our friends and lovers â€¦ and ourselves.
