Medicating Normal: Screening/Reception/Panel Discussion
Medicating Normal (USA/2019/76mins) directed by Lynn Cunningham and Wendy Ractliffe.
Fifty million Americans are physiologically dependent on prescribed psychiatric drugs that are tested and promoted by huge profit driven corporations. Long term use can often lead to worse outcomes. Combining cinema verité and investigative journalism, Medicating Normal follows the stories of five diverse Americans who were harmed by prescribed medications they took to feel better. The larger story of medicine infiltrated by marketing is told by our experts who are psychiatrists and medical researchers at major universities, a military psychologist, and one crusading investigative journalist.
