That Way Madness Lies... Featured on 60 Minutes

NYWIFT member Sandra Luckow's work-in-progress That Way Madness Lies... was featured in one of the three segments comprising the season premiere of CBS's 60 Minutes on Sunday, Sept. 29, at 7 PM. That Way Madness Lies..., (a line from "King Lear," Act III, Scene IV) is a feature-length documentary film about the filmmaker's brother's rare late-onset paranoid schizophrenia, told in-part from his point-of-view with a collection of iPhone video clips he made before being committed to 180 days at the Oregon State Hospital in Portland. His illness has been an unpredictable, hellish journey through a landscape including his friends and family.

The film was featured in a report by Sreve Kroft examining America's mental health system, which many believe is failing, as evidenced by the lack of care given to the Washington Navy Yard shooter.
 
Sandra Luckow is a Columbia and Barnard adjunct film professor. This is the second time in her career that 60 Minutes features Sandra Luckow's film work.  The first time her first subject was the ice skater Tonya Harding.
