Becoming a Video Advocate

Sera Davidow and Daniel Mackler

What does it take to reach a broader audience? Filmmakers Sera Davidow and Daniel Mackler explore the subject of using alternative forms of media to spread an alternative message about mental health. Sera, who recently completed the feature-length film “Beyond The Medical Model,” and Daniel, creator of four full-length documentaries, including “Open Dialogue” and “Coming Off Psych Drugs,” share their experiences as filmmakers and engage in a dialogue with each other and the audience about what motivated them to enter the film world, the difficulties and challenges they have faced on this path, their successes, and the lessons they have learned. Audience participation encouraged!
