THE FILM: Janet Frame grows up in a poor family with many brothers and sisters and is labeled as “different” from an early age. She faces great difficulty in adapting to the conventional rural life around her, and her social awkwardness only worsens as she grows older. After she fails in an attempt to become a schoolteacher due to an intense panic attack, she is subject to psychiatric evaluation and shamefully misdiagnosed as a schizophrenic. Frame is subsequently committed to a mental institution, where she suffers years of unnecessary shock treatments and other horrors. She only starts to see success when she begins to write.
THE TICKETS: Individual tickets to the film ($10/Adult & $4/Student) are available at the door. Admission includes a lecture introducing the director and formal aspects of the film and a post-screening Q & A with UVM Film & Television Studies faculty member Hilary Neroni.
