Inna Vision Film School screenings
The Inna Vision Film School, based in Hackney, has been a year long project working with adults with lived experience of mental health issues, and those without. The participants have made a slate of short documentary and experimental films during the process, touching on various aspects of mental health experience, and with a particular focus on African and Caribbean communities. The participants will present their work in series of screenings and lead discussions of the issues. You can see examples of our films at https://vimeo.com/innavision
