A Deeper Side - A Documentary Film

"The psychotic break was the low point in a story without many peaks, of a normal life shattered by mental illness and then drug abuse.  But David's story is more than that.  Now stable in the Jester 4 psychiatric unit in Richmond, he is an accomplished, largely self-taught artist whose work offers a unique glimpse into the inner life of someone with schizophrenia.  Shaded with depth and meaning, his work provides a portal into the human condition."
