Description

A promising Princeton scholar of string theory, a gold-medal athlete, an artistic photographer, a husband and father, and a valued employee, Percy Paul was a rising star--until bipolar disorder surfaced and plunged him into a dark depression. Flight from Darkness traces the trajectory of Percy's struggle for control over his illness. This documentary unflinchingly pursues a deeper understanding of what Dr. Kay Jamison describes as a "life-threatening and psychotic genetic illness characterized by wide fluctuations in mood, energy, and sleep patterns," in which "you are cohabiting with a self that you have no sense of, but you do have to live with."
