The Williams Lake Library continues its CBC documentary film series tomorrow, Jan. 19 with the film Racing Thoughts.

Racing Thoughts is a film about children who thought they were “crazy;” who wanted to die; who felt fear, anger and hopelessness.

Racing Thoughts skirts the specialists’ debates in favour of a more personal tone, moving away from the alarming vocabulary of diagnoses and allowing viewers to discover the children affected.

David, Blanche Véronique, Brandon, Erynn and their loved ones have made the courageous decision to open up about their stories.

Their voices are complemented by that of the director, who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder as an adult and powerfully evokes the initial symptoms, which emerged in her childhood.

The film starts at 7 p.m. in the library program room. Admission is free and includes popcorn.
