May 2011 was a bi-coastal month for OC87 – in addition to the NCBBH conference screening, we were also honored as one of five films featured in the annual Reel Mind theatre and film series in Rochester, NY. This unique, multi-week event explores not only the social stigma of mental illness, but also the associated struggles, hopes, and pathways of recovery. In spite of a rainy evening, OC87 was a sellout at the charming Cinema Theatre. Since every seat was occupied, Princess, the theatre’s resident feline, felt compelled to pace the aisles as OC87 was rolling. Afterwards, Rochester psychologist Jeff Levenkron, PhD, moderated an upbeat Q&A session with hundreds of audience members and the OC87 directing team (Bud, Glenn, and Scott). We extend special thanks to Ruth Cowing, Reel Mind’s Co-director, for being such a terrific host.
