Manic

MANIC chronicles the filmmaker's struggle to make sense of the legacy of mental illness wreaking havoc over her siblings’ lives.

Convinced that her father holds a key piece of the puzzle, she sets out to find the truth about him, and discovers a man known alternately as a cult leader, a scam artist, a prophet, and a father of fifteen.

A film By Kalina Bertin
