Friday, we wrap up our coverage of this year’s Sundance Film Festival with a harrowing look at how America cares for those suffering serious mental illness. Director Ken Rosenberg’s film Bedlam follows the stories of several mentally ill patients in Los Angeles as they bounce in and out of healthcare facilities, housing, drug abuse, homelessness and prison. It’s a tragic and painful loop, and it didn’t used to be like this. Rosenberg joins us to talk about the crisis of our mental health system.

Kenneth Paul Rosenberg directed, wrote and produced the documentary film Bedlam, along with writer and producer Peter Miller. The film is showing in the U.S. Documentary Competition at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.
