For OCD Awareness Week 2017, the National Alliance of Mental Illness at Duke is partnering with the OCD North Carolina and Dagtype Film to present a short-film screening of "Oh Crappy Day" and a presentation by the writer and director, John Lance Bacon.
From The Odd Couple to The Aviator, Bacon will examine the history of OCD on the big screen and consider what popular media reveals about our culture's understanding of the disorder. We will then have the opportunity to screen "Oh Crappy Day." This award-winning 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.
Beverages and light snacks will be provided.
