Video Description

This is the first part of a documentary I made about a diagnosed schizophrenic man who got in trouble for feeding wild rats in a town not far from where I live. Most videos I post are off-the-wall or tongue-in-cheek, but this is actually a serious look at various issues. It won honorable mention at the Vermont Independent Video Fest in 1996. In case anyone is interested.-


"I kept hearing the neighbours banging on the walls trying to play on my nerves (or so I thought). My response was to run not just out of the house, but to get as far away as possible"
