Crooked Beauty

Crooked Beauty Movie Poster

Crooked Beauty is a poetic documentary that chronicles artist-activist Jacks McNamara's transformative journey from childhood abuse to psych ward patient to pioneering mental health advocacy. It is a portrait of her personal quest to live with courage and dignity, and a critique of standard psychiatric treatments.

Poignant testimonials connect the fissures and fault lines of human nature to the unstable topography and mercurial weather patterns of the San Francisco Bay Area.
