Renegade Lens principals recently wrapped post-production on Perfection, the first film in the Real MINDS™ Project series. Created by director David Christopher Loya and funded in accordance with the Mental Health Services Act of 2004 (California Proposition 63), the Real MINDS (Mental Illness stigma Negation via Dynamic Storytelling) Project is a collection of dramatic films designed to combat the social stigma associated with mental illness.
“Those who suffer from mental illness remain the last social justice frontier we have yet to confront,” explains Perfection writer/director David Christopher Loya.
“Not unlike racism, the denigration of the mentally ill is something unconsciously and collectively woven deep into the fabric of society. We all have come to easily engage in jokes and deprecation about mental illness, often without considering its devastating effects on those who are already among the most vulnerable in our midst. But if we pause to think about it, why should mental illness be perceived more negatively, than other common illnesses, like diabetes or cancer?”
Perfection introduces us to 17-year-old Michael Rodriguez (played by Matthew Parry-Jones), an intelligent young man diagnosed with high functioning autism (commonly referred to as Asperger’s Syndrome). Although Autism, a neurological condition, is not technically a mental illness, children living with Autism are often targets for bullying. Michael, like many children and teens on the spectrum, struggles with a related mental illness, which spirals into a suicidal depression.
Perfection was produced in conjunction with 2SenseWorth International, a nonprofit dedicated to providing children with the resources needed to achieve their highest possible human potential. It is the filmakers’ hope that by casting a light on both the challenges faced by and the often amazing capabilities of children on the Autism spectrum, Perfection will start a conversation that can help reduce the social stigma faced by those diagnosed with Autism, and quite possibly save lives.
