ANDY IRONS: KISSED BY GOD
In this film there are a lot of triggers and emotions but are real. That is why it was chosen for the list. It is one of the rare movies about bipolar that not only focuses on the disorder but life itself. Living with this is not easy and this documentary shows that.
The film is all about three-time world champion surfer Andy Irons struggles with bipolar disorder and opioid addiction.
Stephan Fry: The secret life of a manic depressive
This is a decent film that touches on a lot of basics. We like it because it looks into how it effects a range of different type of people.
Stephen embarks on an emotional journey to meet fellow sufferers, and discuss the literal highs and lows of being bi-polar.
Celebrities such as Carrie Fisher and Richard Dreyfuss invite the comedian into their home to relate their stories.
Plus Stephen looks into the lives of ordinary people trying to deal with the illness at work and home, and of course to the people studying manic depression in an effort to better control it. A fascinating, moving and ultimately very entertaining Emmy Award-winning program.
