Letters from Generaton RX

Doors open 6pm film screened at 6:30pm

Join us for an exclusive New Zealand premiere showing of LETTERS FROM GENERATION Rx followed by a discussion led by Prof Julia Rucklidge, University of Canterbury, about the film and whether natural health products legislation now before Parliament is in the public’s best interests.

LETTERS FROM GENERATION Rx, narrated by Academy Award-winner Tilda Swinton, is designed to spur an international conversation about mental illness and our current treatments.  Miller spent two years interviewing some of the world’s most respected researchers, doctors, journalists, politicians, academics and dozens of regular folks whose lives were blighted by the medications they were prescribed. The film features those who lost it all and those who came back from agony and desperation to a place of true wellness. This film is essential viewing for those interested in an intelligent conversation about the causes of mental illness and its treatments. By coming to this showing, you support the Mental Health and Nutrition Research Laboratory which is investigating alternative ways forward for treating mental illness.
