Family Experience Documented

A podcast and a sample reel of the dcumentary, “That Way Madness Lies,” produced by Sandra Luckow.  This film is about Sandra’s brother, Duane, and his descent into paranoid schizophrenia.

“As the documentary progresses, Sandra skillfully and subtly spins the narrative away from Duanne and onto herself, her family and our mental health system’s failure to help her brother.   Like Pete Earley (2021), I will not disclose the ending of the film but will say that – unlike the fairy tale ending that Hollywood requires – Duanne’s struggles continue and Sandra’s love proves insufficient to health a brain disorder – just as devotion and love are no match for cancer or heart disease.’  And like so many of us, we turn to advocacy.

You can contact your local PBS station and ask that the film be aired here.
