Breaking the Chains: Screening with Discussion & Reception - Dr Erminia Col...
Thu 11 May 2017, 16:00 – 18:00 BST
Watch a thought provoking film on stigma and human rights violations of mental illness sufferers.
Breaking the Chains is an ethnographic photo/film-documentary project about human rights violations against people with mental illness. It depicts the use of physical restraint and confinement of people with mental illness in Indonesia, a practice known as pasung in this country but widespread also in other low-middle income countries. The film contributes to an understanding of pasung, the reasons behind this practice, and the issues that must be overcome to eradicate this human rights abuse.
The session will be chaired by Dr Lisa Marzano and the screening will be followed by a Q& A session with the author, Dr Erminia Colucci, with a reception.
