Mad To Be Normal Starring David Tennant Screens At Galway Film Fleadh


Mad To Be Normal will screen in competition at the Galway Film Fleadh next month on 12th July. This will also be the film's Irish premiere. David Tennant stars as revolutionary Scottish psychiatrist R.D. Laing in the hit movie based on Laing's controversial medication-free treatment facility that he set up in Kingsley Hall in London during the late 1960s. The movie also stars Elisabeth Moss, Michael Gambon and Gabriel Byrne and was written and directed by Robert Mullan, who will attend the screening.

The Galway Film Fleadh was founded in 1989 and aims to showcase the best of Irish and international cinema. This year's event runs from 11th-16th July in venues around Galway city.

Mad To Be Normal
Mad To Be Normal reveals the story of R.D. Laing, the famous psychiatrist and one of Scotland’s greatest ever minds. Working out of Kingsley Hall in East London throughout the 1960s and 1970s, Laing performed various daring experiments on people who were diagnosed as mentally disturbed. His revolutionary methods involved experimenting with LSD on his patients and practicing a form of self-­healing known as metanoia, causing outrage and controversy in the medical profession and radically changing attitudes and perceptions of mental health around the world.
