Norman Kunc was born with cerebral palsy, Although the doctors recommended that he be institutionalized, Norman’s parents ignored their advice and took him home. Norman has received a Masters of Science in Family Therapy and become a well-known disability rights advocate, yet he has always been haunted by what his life might have been like had his parents followed the doctors’ advice.
In a collage of powerful images set to poignant music, Norman Kunc expresses the terror of almost having been incarcerated for life.
A life like this is what many people who have been labeled with psychiatric illness can look forward to. If not within the confines of an institution then behind the fog of too many drugs.
