Out of My Head - Community Screening
NOW YOU CAN HOST A COMMUNITY SCREENING OF OUT OF MY HEAD!
There are few things more frightening than having a child who is sick and whose illness you don't understand. Out of My Head shares the journey Susanna Styron experienced when her daughter, Emma, encountered spells of blindness and vomiting at the age of fourteen. Emma's eventual migraine diagnosis, rather than putting an end to the mystery and confusion, was just the beginning, as mother and daughter embarked on a years-long journey to discover the truth about living with migraine.
Along the way, Out of My Head introduces doctors, neuroscientists, and other migraineurs. Among them: an Iraq war veteran whose migraine attacks stem from combat related traumatic brain injury; a college professor deciding whether she dare go off her migraine medication to have a second child; a husband who becomes a migraine activist on his wife’s behalf; and Joan Didion, reading from her legendary essay “In Bed.” Out of My Head takes us on a journey through migraine’s fascinating history and bizarre symptomology, amid subjects ranging from the gut/brain connection to art and spirituality.
We will ship a Blu-ray and a DVD back-up to arrive 7 days prior to your screening.
