This fascinating film reveals the story of R.D. Laing, the famous psychiatrist and one of Scotland’s greatest ever minds.

Working out of Kingsley Hall in East London during the late 1960s and early 1970s, Laing was daring in his treatment of schizophrenia. His revolutionary methods caused outrage and controversy in the medical profession and radically changed attitudes and perceptions of mental health around the world. Starring David Tennant, Elisabeth Moss and Gabriel Byrne.

The screening will be followed by a discussion on issues raised by the film. 

Presented in partnership with Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival
