OC87 – The Obsessive Compulsive Major Depression Bipolar Asperger’s Movie

Standard

 

Filmmaker Bud Clayman’s documentary is a personal story with universal relevance – a wildly original documentary of pain and vulnerability, empowerment and his quest for belonging.

Throughout his youth, Bud’s future was filmmaking. After college he headed to Hollywood in search of a break. Instead he had a breakdown. Thirty years later, in an effort to reclaim and share his story, he made the movie of his life.

“I want people to understand,” says Clayman, “there is more to mental illness than pain and problems. My recovery is about acceptance and getting on with life.”

On Thursday May 1, The Mental Health Association in Genesee County and the Reel Mind Theatre & Film Series presents OC87, The Obsessive Compulsive Major Depression Bipolar Asperger’s Movie by Bud Clayman in the Stuart Steiner Theatre at 7pm. Doors open at 6:30 pm.

After the screening, there will be a question and answer session with Bud Clayman, Co-Director Glenn Holsten, and Clinical Director at the Rochester Psychiatric Center Dr. Larry Guttmacher, M.D.

There will be an additional screening for students from 12:30pm – 2pm. Suggested donations for both showings is $5.

This project is made possible through the Reach Grant Program, a decentralization regrant program administered by the Genesee Orleans Regional Arts Council.
