Vancouver filmmaker Cindy Lou Griffith and author Irit Shimrat discuss the impact of psychiatry on their lives.
Tiffany Chong, Stark Raven Media Collective
Vancouver filmmaker Cindy Lou Griffith's relationship with psychiatry started even before she was born. Her father had been committed to Riverview Mental Hospital as a young man and continued to be sent there for the next 30-plus years. But treatments of electro-shock therapy and harsh medications didn't do much to help him. She explores the impact of psychiatry on her father and others who've been part of the psychiatric system in a series of films. One of the people Cindy Lou documents is author and anti-psychiatry activist Irit Shimrat. They both spoke to Stark Raven's Tiffany Chong.
