From the perspective of Calgary writer/director Wendy Hill-Tout, Insanity looks at how society has transitioned from the asylums of old to the “asylums” of the streets and jail cells. Despite experiencing suicidal ideation and being diagnosed with schizophrenia, Hill-Tout’s brother, Bruce, was released from the hospital and never seen again. 25 years later, the filmmaker recounts her family’s journey as they search for Bruce on the streets of Vancouver. Insanity asks why those who suffer mental illness end up in the justice system rather than the healthcare system. It asks us to create a more human world for those who are suffering. It is a film that demands change.
