Interested in having Crooked Beauty screened in your hometown?

An email from Annie Robinson seeking venues:

My name is Annie Robinson and I am helping coordinate a national tour
of a provocative new mental health documentary called Crooked Beauty. As the Outreach Assistant to director Ken Paul Rosenthal, I’m
currently building a list of contacts to whom I will send screening &
presentation proposals.

The tour will be traveling this spring to Wisconsin and the Pacific Northwest, and continuing thereafter throughout the United States.

We are interested in reaching out to mental health treatment centers,
non-profits, psych hospitals, art/creativity programs, universities,
and art collectives. If you have suggestions of venues,
organizations, or individuals affiliated with the aforementioned
areas, please let me know.

Thank you so much.

The trailer of the film:

The DVD is also available for purchase on the website. I’ve seen the whole thing now, it’s visually lovely and the narration is also brilliant.

Crooked Beauty is a poetic documentary that will reshape how you think and feel about madness. From childhood abuse to psych ward patient to pioneering mental health advocacy, it is an intimate portrait of artist-activist Ashley McNamara’s intense personal quest to live with hope and dignity, and a powerful critique of standard psychiatric treatments. Through Ashley’s poignant testimonials and a lyrical visual style, Crooked Beauty draws new maps for madness as a tool of insight and inspiration for those who openly struggle with their mental health, and anyone who might feel ‘crazy’ in today’s chaotic world.
