This poetic documentary will reshape how you think and feel about madness. From childhood abuse to psych ward patient to pioneering mental health advocacy, Crooked Beauty is an intimate portrait of artist-activist Jacks Ashley McNamara's intense personal quest to live with hope and dignity, and a powerful critique of standard psychiatric treatments. Poignant testimonials connect the fissures and fault lines of human nature to the unstable topography and mercurial weather patterns of the San Francisco Bay Area. Crooked Beauty draws new maps for madness as a tool of insight and inspiration for those who openly struggle with their mental health, and anyone who might feel 'crazy' in today's chaotic world.
