A groundbreaking look at mental illness in America
W.i.p. screening announced
Dear Kickstarter Supporters,
Finally, at long last, I would like to invite you to come to a work-in-progress screening of "That Way Madness Lies..." to get your input and impressions of the film — what is working or not working for you — what is unclear or perhaps over-explained. I want to know from you if it is meeting the potential you imagined it to have when you invested in the idea of the movie several years ago. After the screening will be a presentation by the resplendent Kathleen Pike, Ph.D the director of the Global Mental Health Initiative at Columbia University. Click here for more details about the screening.
I hope to see you there and get your feedback.

“That Way Madness Lies..." is a feature-length documentary about my brother Duanne Luckow’s mental decline into severe paranoid schizophrenia, and the dynamics and destruction of a family where creative chaos was prized. The film uses first-person iPhone video of Duanne’s psychosis as the backbone of the film’s narrative. Interviews and verite moments with family, first-responders, legal experts, and mental health professionals are the connective tissue that weave together the story.
Please watch the new five minute trailer and consider donating to this important project today. Thank you.
