Screening of OUT OF MY HEAD Documentary
April 16 @ 7:30 PM
The feature documentary film “Out Of My Head” is playing on April 16th at 7:30 PM. The film is brought to Long Beach by a group of individuals who are using a new crowd-sourcing platform called Theatrical On Demand. Theatrical-On-Demand allows movie-goers to bring the movies they want to watch to their nearby local theater with no rental cost and no risk.
The screening is being hosted by local health advocate Angie Glaser, author of ChronicMigraineLife.com.
A filmmaker, seeking treatment for her daughter’s migraine attacks, discovers a confounding neurological disease, and learns why a condition so ubiquitous and severe remains deeply misunderstood. We learn that, rather than a terrible headache, migraine is a complex, deeply stigmatized neurological disease afflicting nearly a billion people worldwide. This kaleidoscopic journey, told through interviews, cinema verite, art and animation, explores the history, impact and raw emotion evoked by this unpredictable and confounding condition.
“It’s more complex for a man to be struck down by something that seems so ephemeral as a migraine, but is as disabling as taking a gun out and shooting him, stopping him in his tracks.”
