Summary:
"Filmed over five years, Out of the shadow chronicles the filmmaker's mother, Millie, who suffers from schizophrenia. With grace and compassion, this intimate film illustrates the painful complexities of severe mental illness and the woefully inadequate public health system set up to deal with it. A story of madness and dignity, shame and love, Out of the shadow illuminates a national plight through one family's struggle and helps to dispel the stigmas and misconceptions surrounding this harrowing illness"--Disc container.
General Note:
"DVD special features: A new short film: The epilogue to Out of the shadow; filmmaker interview; deleted scenes; extra interviews; English subtitles; Spanish subtitles; chapter selection"--Disc container.

Accompanied by two discussion guides: Discussion guide for Out of the shadow, a cinematic study of schizophrenia and How families can manage and prepare for crises by Jon Stanley and Mary Zdanowicz.
