OCD Onscreen: history of OCD on the big screen (Durham, NC)

October 12, 2017 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

Co-hosted by OCD North Carolina and NAMI at Duke

Literary scholar and filmmaker Jon Lance Bacon examines the history of OCD on the big screen, from The Odd Couple to The Aviator, and considers what the movies reveal about our culture’s understanding of the disorder. As part of the presentation, Bacon will also show his award-winning short film “Oh Crappy Day.” The film springs from Bacon’s own experience dealing with OCD, a condition that made him feel, for a long time, as if he were just too odd to find love and acceptance.  Free admission. Beverages and snacks provided.
