Duanne Luckow, 46, began a scary, dangerous and ever-escalating cycle of arrests, incarcerations and mental institutional stays. Three months into his first court-ordered 180-day commitment at Oregon State Hospital, Sandra Luckow, his sister and filmmaker, visited him. He gave her his iPhone with 250 video clips. He wanted his experience documented. With their cameras, they expose an ineffectual and inhuman system as well as delve deep into the strength of family ties. Yale School of Medicine and the Global Initiative on Mental Health at Columbia University say the iPhone footage Duanne shot as he descended into madness offers a rare, unprecedented, unfiltered look at the mind of man with untreated schizophrenia This is a specific harrowing story about a singular family trying to find its way through society's imperfections, stigmas and prejudice when dealing with mental illness. It is a search for answers - a free-fall into a quagmire of conflicting interests, policies, and despair. Written by Sandra Luckow
