ABOUT THE DOCUMENTARY:
Joe Pantoliano (The Sopranos, Memento, The Matrix) makes his documentary directorial debut with NO KIDDING, ME TOO! as part of his fight against the stigma and shame of mental/brain "dis-ease" (or disease). This empowering film sheds light on what nearly 100 million Americans suffer in isolation. Through candid, often humorous discussions with Pantoliano and his family on their struggle with his own clinical depression, as well as the compelling stories of five other people from all walks of life, all affected differently by mental illness: a brain surgeon with bipolar disorder, a psychologist with ADHD, and three high school students managing bipolar disorder and clinical depression. Each frankly discusses the struggle before they were diagnosed, including attempts at self-medication and other destructive behavior, as well as the hope and encouragement they discover when managing their own recovery and realizing they are not alone. The result is an inspiring vision of a society that "stomps the stigma," as those impacted by mental illness are surprised to find millions of others like themselves, saying, "No kidding, me too!" Aired on PBS in April 2010. Directed by Joe Pantoliano. Produced by Joseph Greco, Lauren Millner, and Ben Churchill. Edited by Ben Churchill, Francis Sheehan, and David Russell. Executive Produced by Chris Campbell and Joe Pantoliano. Post-Production at Palace Digital Studios in South Norwalk, CT.
