A Drop of Sunshine, documentary on schizophrenia by Aparna Sanyal.

A Drop of Sunshine, documentary on schizophrenia by Aparna Sanyal.

A drop of sunshine', a 40 minute documentary on the life of a young woman from Pune diagnosed with schizophrenia and her recovery

[part 1; follow links upto part 4]

This movie by Aparna Sanyal about Reshma Valliappan [Resh Val] won the 2012 national award for the Best Educational / Motivational / Instructional Film.

Schizophrenia. It may be one word, but it immediately conjures up multiple connotations - mad, incurable, violent, suicidal, chemical imbalances, crazy, a lifelong condition, an inevitable dependency on Medicines. This film questions this negative mainstream view of the condition, and wonders if an alternative destiny for a person with a diagnosis is possible. It charts out the story of Reshma Valliappan, who now lives a fulfilling life, free of medicines. The film explores a controversial, but ultimately empowering, view of the condition, which a small minority of brave psychologists and psychiatrists are beginning to embrace across the world. It also proposes a contrarian approach towards treatment for the condition, where the patient is encouraged and equipped to become an equal partner in the process of healing.
