Crooked Beauty A beautiful Documentary at the Marran



Women's Center Health & Gender Series Fall 2011

On November 7th at 7pm The Women's Center will be co-sponsoring the documentary Crooked Beauty. Don't miss this wonderful opportunity to see the film followed Q&A with the Director.

Crooked Beauty is a poetic documentary that chronicles artist-activist Jacks McNamara's transformative journey from childhood abuse to psych ward inpatient to pioneering mental health advocacy. It is an intimate portrait of her intense personal quest to live with courage and dignity, and a powerful critique of standard psychiatric treatments. Poignant testimonials connect the fissures and fault lines of human nature to the unstable topography and mercurial weather patterns of the San Francisco Bay Area. Crooked Beauty reshapes mental health stigmas through a new healing culture and political model for living with madness as a tool of creativity, inspiration and hope.
