About the film

This film is about a woman who has a Borderline Personality Disorder diagnosis. The first time she tried to kill herself, she was five years old. Now she is 45 and hell-bent on trying to live – most of the time.

She reacts on impulse, attacks, distracts, meditates, offers social commentary, trips over herself, laughs, judges, burns bridges, makes social gaffes, apologizes, loses her cool, philosophizes and remains dogged in her search for recovery.

WILL TRAVEL / WILL SKYPE

The filmmaker, Rebbie Ratner, and (if you wish) cast and crew would love to connect with your community in real time. We can travel or Skype pre or post screenings and are happy to make classroom visits, speak on panels or answer audience questions. Rebbie has had substantial treatment for BPD and while by no means an expert therapist, has been treated by exceptional clinicians and has a fair degree of experiential knowledge to contribute to the conversation. Please email us and let us know what you have in mind so we can discuss rates and availability.

WHY WE ASK FOR SCREENING FEES…?

Screening fees help us cover labor and the costs of self-distribution. In addition, we aim to maintain and update the content on our Youtube channel, Borderlinernotes, which offers free access to world-class clinicians about mental health. Payments we receive help us continue to feed this channel and information source. If you are part of a patient/consumer-run group or organization and your budget can’t accommodate our rates, please reach out to Collective Eye, our educational distributor, and explain your circumstances, as they should be able to assist.
