Gogo Ekhaya Esima

Documentary Film CRAZYWISE

Wednesday, November 15, 2017,  7 – 9 PM

With free popcorn and drinks!

CRAZYWISE is about looking at what dominant culture pathologizes as mental illness as a spiritual crisis instead. The film frames this possibility through the work of Phil Borges, a photographer/videographer who documented human rights issues of indigenous peoples around the world.

CRAZYWISE doesn’t romanticize indigenous wisdom, or completely condemn Western treatment. Trailer and more info on the film’s website here.
