I’ve been thinking for a while about branching out with my filmmaking and making films not just on recovery from psychosis or changing the mental health system. So, I finally did it! I made my first new film, a short film, called TRUTHTELLER. The subject is my friend and colleague Fred Timm, a visionary in New York City who has very clear ideas on what’s going wrong with our species, what the consequences of this will be, and what we need to do to fix it. (Fred’s website: www.visionaryman.net.) Fred also happens to be the most talented psychotherapist I know.
As per my concept of not spending months making a single film, I shot the entire seven-minute film in about 90 minutes and edited and created the music that evening and the following day. So….here it is!
