BORDERLINE - Ridgefield Playhouse Screening
People say having a Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) diagnosis is equivalent to

walking through life with a Do Not Resuscitate order. To the extent that it is portrayed

in popular culture, the disorder is often caricatured: shrieking outbursts, bleeding

eyeliner, dark mascara and slashed wrists. This film does not do that.


BORDERLINE is the first documentary film to capture the lived experience of

Borderline Personality Disorder. An estimated 2 percent of the US population carry

the diagnosis, 80 percent of these people attempt suicide, and 10 percent succeed.

Approximately 25 percent of the in-patient substance addicted and 25 percent of the

in-patient eating disorder populations meet the diagnostic criteria for BPD, yet few are

actually given a diagnosis.


This film follows one person with the Borderline diagnosis who gives us access to her

internal world. Regina is a 45-year old woman  outta work and outta love. Witty

and self-aware, she makes observations that are uncomfortable but astute, reacts on

impulse, attacks, distracts, meditates, trips over herself, laughs, burns bridges, makes

social gaffes, apologizes, loses her cool, philosophizes and remains dogged in her

search for recovery. Yet, the human intimacy she needs most to recover, her

symptoms threaten to destroy.
