Fighting the Stigma: Crime and Mental Illness (One-Hour Version)

The Series Includes : NCR: Not Criminally Responsible (One-hour version) | Out of Mind, Out of Sight (One-Hour version)
3-Year Streaming Price: $339.90



Forensic psychiatric sufferers—once called the criminally insane—have long been among society's most feared and reviled citizens. Is it possible for the public to feel compassion for such people although they have committed terrible acts of violence? Remarkably, these two documentaries, NCR: Not Criminally Responsible and Out of Mind, Out of Sight from four-time Emmy-winner John Kastner, show that it is. Although people know what they did, the films' subjects circulate freely in the community without a negative response. "Remarkable to watch...[Kastner] has advanced the case of forensic psychiatry."—The Lancet Psychiatry. "I believe it could help to soften a whole generation's attitude to sufferers, perhaps more than almost any film I have seen."—Dr. Ivan Silver, VP, Education, Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, Toronto.
