All children are born full of promise, ready to go forth into the world and meet his or her destiny. But for those diagnosed with schizophrenia in the prime of their lives, independence, acceptance, and even a place to call home usually slips beyond their grasp.
Over three years, film-makers Abbey Jack Neidik and Irene Lilienheim Angelico followed three engaging young men living with mental illness.
The documentary Unbreakable Minds tells the emotional stories of the three young men as they learn to deal with their inner demons as they try to fit into a society that treats them with hostility. Opening up for the film, these men talk candidly about their darkest days and brightest triumphs and take us on an unforgettable experience of living with schizophrenia.
Through their heroic examples, they also offer a challenge to society to smash this last taboo.
