HEALING VOICES (2016)

Role: Director

HEALING VOICES is a social action documentary that is changing the conversation about mental illness. The movie explores the experience commonly labeled as ‘psychosis’ through real-life stories, and features interviews with notable international experts on the history of psychiatric treatment and the rise of the ‘medical model’ of mental health care.

The film originally premiered in 130+ communities via grass roots screenings produced by local groups and organizations in eight countries, which were followed by town hall style dialogues which asked: What are we talking about, when we talk about ‘mental illness’? HEALING VOICES continues to make a measurable social impact by engaging audiences to ‘rethink madness’ and change our cultural conversation about mental health.

SPACEMAN (2016)

Role: Producer

From the executive producer of ‘Bull Durham’ and ‘White Men Can’t Jump’ comes SPACEMAN, the mostly-true story of former all-star MLB pitcher Bill ‘Spaceman’ Lee. In the twilight of a long career as one of baseball’s all-time great eccentrics, Lee (Josh Duhamel) is cut from the Montreal Expos in 1982. Though Lee finds himself blackballed by the rest of the league for his outspoken politics (his views being “somewhere to left of Che Guevara”) and notoriously enthusiastic drug use, he refuses to quit the game. As of 2016, he still hasn’t.

Starring: Josh Duhamel, Ernie Hudson and W. Earl Brown
