Of Two Minds is an award-winning feature documentary by Doug Blush and Lisa Klein, that explores the extraordinary lives, struggles and success of a few of the over five million Americans living with bipolar disorder. Personal stories of harrowing events, medical mazes, discrimination and the effects of social stigma blend together to create a compelling look at a generation coming out of the "bipolar closet". Of Two Minds puts an authentic human face on bipolar disorder, providing an intimate, sometimes painful, sometimes painfully funny look at those who live in its shadows…our parents and children, our friends and lovers…and ourselves. Of Two Minds comes from the creative team behind The Invisible War, Wordplay, I.O.U.S.A., Superheroes and These Amazing Shadows.
