A New Documentary by Two-Time Academy Award Winner Bill Guttentag
BIPOLAR is an upcoming feature-length documentary (in development) about undiagnosed mental illness. It unfolds through a husband’s raw home videos as he attempts to save his family during his wife’s transformation from loving mother to a destructive stranger.
Bipolar disorder is a mental health condition characterized by extreme mood changes - from emotional highs — also known as mania or hypomania - to deep lows of depression. Symptoms can be difficult to discern and vary from person to person.
Bipolar disorder affects approximately 14 million Americans, or about 4.4% of the U.S. population. 82.9% of those affected with bipolar disorder have "serious impairment." This is the highest % among all mood disorders. (National Institute of Mental Health).
