Project Description

DIAGNONSENSE

A self-reflexive meta-documentary, DIAGNONSENSE begins with filmmaker Ane-Martha Tamnes Hansgård who was diagnosed with multiple mental disorders over a fifteen-year period, and prescribed a staggering number of psychotropic medications. Ten years ago, she embarked on the first of many attempts to make a film about living with a mental disorder, but each effort was cut short due to new diagnoses, new medications, and new side effects. Now, having weaned herself off the drugs, and reaching a critical distance from her diagnoses, she is ready to tell her story, and to challenge the need for psychological labeling.
