Mad To Be Normal, tells the fascinating story of world-renowned Scottish psychiatrist R.D.Laing (played by David Tennant) and his unique community at Kingsley Hall, East London, during the 1960s. R.D. Laing was one of Scotland's most creative thinkers, and in the 60s and 70s was the world's best-known psychiatrist.
His books regularly topped the student best-seller lists in the USA, he shared the same stage as bands like the Grateful Dead, recited poetry at jazz clubs and was never far away from controversy. The psychiatric establishment regularly tried to close his community at Kingsley Hall, seeing his occasional therapeutic use of LSD and his belief in metanoia (self-healing) as irresponsible and unscientific.
MAD TO BE NORMAL will have its world premiere as it closes the GLASGOW FILM FESTIVAL on FEBRUARY 26TH.
MAD TO BE NORMAL will be released in cinemas on April 6th 2017.
Exclusive one week run in Glasgow from 23rd March.
