Nagpur, Maharashtra – Indian filmmaker and screenwriter, Bhushan Mahadani, is announcing the launch of a crowdfunding campaign for a movie called ‘Sarah’, which will be the first of its kind to be released in this way, and will tackle the question of mental illness that our society faces at this critical juncture.
Mental health is a matter of human condition, which can occur among anyone out there. For centuries, the stigma associated with mental illness has made the patients living their lives fairly torturous and miserable, to say the least. Mahadani’s aim with the movie is supposed to break and crush all pre-conceived notions and assumptions about the issue at large. It’s all supposed to bring about a greater extent of happiness and improved life experiences whose existence is already crushed by the occurrence or advent of the illness, whatever it might be.
The main mental illness tackled in the movie is supposed to be about schizophrenia and shall feature a story that will mirror all the nuances and aspects that go about in real life. The state of mental illness needs to be critically addressed since studies have shown that every sixth person in the world suffers from some kind of the same. The reason that the filmmaker has chosen a crowdfunding campaign is to show the people all around enough people care, and with participation and goodwill, there is practically nothing that cannot be achieved. Blaming the illness for the cases of suffering and misery, instead of the ones who are afflicted is something that needs to be confirmed, and the movie will evoke deep questions about it.
A video that is supposed to serve as a trailer has already been released and can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7YhPSdC2cFw&feature=youtu.be.
