Mad To Be Normal To Screen At British Film Festival In Russia


Mad To Be Normal is to screen at the 2017 New British Film Festival in Russia. The festival takes place across 8 Russian cities from 30th October until 1st December.

Mad To Be Normal sees David Tennant star as 1960’s celebrity psychiatrist R.D.Laing who revolutionised the treatment of people diagnosed with mental illness.  It reveals the story of Ronnie Laing, 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. 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.

Elisabeth Moss, Michael Gambon, Adam Paul Harvey and Gabriel Byrne co star. The film was written and directed by Robert Mullan and is produced by Gizmo Films and Bad Penny Productions.

Mad To Be Normal will screen in the following cities, Voronezh, Kazan, Moscow, Novosibirsk, Omsk, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy, Samara and Saint Petersburg.

It will screen in English with Russian subtitles. Exact screening times and dates are yet to be confirmed.
