Awesome! Bravo.

Hello Oryx,

I had the pleasure to watch your doc at the Kiva center with several of my colleagues from Umass memorial.We all enjoyed it very much.I had many question for you playing devils advocate.My concern is for the audience member who hears voices or may be paranoid.I witness a young man become very emotional and leave looking really disturbed. I knew and had worked with him in the past.Do you have a person at these viewings to deal with that type of situation and did you notice or remember this?I introduced myself and told you i was also doing a doc. on the evolution of the mental health system an some alternative methods of treating MI i got your contact info and would love to meet you to talk about your process of creating this doc.

thank you for the experience! Shaun Cannon
