Alien Boy is a film about James Chasse, a man with schizophrenia who died in the custody of the Portland police about 5 years ago. It is a tragic story, but an important one as it deals with issues of social justice for the mentally ill, the breakdown of the community mental health system, and what it means to have a severe and persistent mental illness in the US today.

This screening of the documentary will be followed by a discussion with director and LC alumnus Brian Lindstrom, BS ‘84. Sponsored by the Psychology Department.
