FILM opens with a bang
A Society member has commissioned and scripted a short film, 'The Phone Call', about borderline personality disorder. Dr Victoria Tischler, Lecturer in Behavioural Sciences at the University of Nottingham, said: 'The film explores how we make sense of another person's reality. The focus is on mental distress, and the complexities and difficulties inherent in understanding and communicating with someone who may be on the borderline of illness. The script was inspired by my previous clinical work in psychiatric settings. I wished to explore the way that professionals respond to patients with BPD, the communication challenges associated with such encounters, and the emotions that may be experienced by both patient and professional.'
The film was chosen to be shown at Bang, a short film festival in November.
