Borte, Queen of Tibet: A Journey into Mental Illness and the Healing Power of Filmmaking [Brooklyn, NY] #filmscreening

Posted March 30, 2017

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and Film Lab has a very special screening of a film created by and about a young woman who was involuntarily committed to the Bellevue Psychiatric Ward in 2010 by the New York Police Department. Part documentary, part fantasy, “Borte, Queen of Tibet” is a quiet meditation on recovery from Schizo Affective Disorder. Shot guerrilla style to depict the hostile takeover Schizo Affective Disorder has over the mind, the short film plays with perspective in asking, how do we distinguish reality from delusion? The film will be followed by a panel moderated by Film Lab’s Industry Spotlight Coordinator, Renee Lasher, and a networking reception for filmmakers.

This event will be held at the Asian American Arts Alliance at 20 Jay Street, Suite 740 Brooklyn, NY on Monday, May 1st from 6:30pm-8:30pm.
