Sick
Dir. Hrvoje Mabic
Croatia 2015 (95:00)

When she was sixteen, Ana was committed to a Croatian psychiatric institution by her parents. Why? Ana is gay, which to her family meant she must be insane. After five years of harrowing treatment to ‘cure’ her, Ana was released with PTSD, suicidal ideation, anger management issues and an obsessive determination to make the people subjected her to such treatment accountable for their actions. This is Ana’s story, told in an intimate and powerful documentary that will resonate with anyone who has been made to feel somehow defective for their sexual identity or pushed to the limits of sanity in the name of being ‘normal’.

Following the screening, there will a Q&A session and discussion about the film.

Presented by the Rendezvous with Madness Film Festival. Learn more, here
