HIDDEN WOUNDS, 90min., USA, Documentary
Directed by Richard Lui
Hidden Wounds is a revealing film about the importance of mental health for both those living with a disability and in addition, their caregivers too.
It is a film that shows us how mental health is not what we think it is. It is not only the polar extremes of what the movies or media have made it out to be. It often comes in shades of grey and in places we do not expect or notice.
Seven years ago, I learned my father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. I knew I may have to leave the career I worked for and loved so much, journalism. But my company did the unexpected. I could work part-time so I could fly from New York to California weekly to care for my Dad.
I am one in three Americans who is touched by caring for an ailing loved one. And I’m part of the half a trillion annual dollars in work me and 53 million others do for loved ones. I'm proud to do it — and I'm proud to share the stories of others doing it, too.
