Face 2 Face with David Peck

I believe that good conversation can create change. They can also be fun and engaging, full of insights and unexpected outcomes. And you're never quite sure where they're going to lead. Intimate dialogue assumes authenticity, transparency and dealing with substantive and sometimes difficult questions. I try to do that with Face2Face.

Synopsis

Manic chronicles filmmaker Kalina Bertin’s struggle to make sense of the legacy of mental illness wreaking havoc over her sibling’s lives.

Convinced that her father holds a key piece of the puzzle, she sets out to find the truth about him, and discovers a man known alternately as a cult leader, a scam artist, a prophet, and a father of fifteen.

Manic invites the viewer on a compelling and intimate journey through time and through the mind, where past and present collide.

Biography

After completing her degree in film production in Montreal at UQÀM, filmmaker Kalina Bertin quickly realized that if she didn’t set out to understand the mental illness in her family it would destroy her. This process gave birth to her compelling documentary film Manic, which explores the legacy of bipolar disorder in her family.

Aiming to build empathy and awareness toward such a complex condition, she currently is directing a virtual reality experience, which will enable the viewer to explore the world of manic-depression from within.

Kalina presented this project in development at the MIT Open Documentary lab and at the MUTEK and SODEC Atelier Grand Nord VR.

Manic and ManicVR are both produced by EyeSteelFilm, a two-time Emmy award winning production company based in Montreal.
