One Course Discourse ~ DARK SIDE OF THE FULL MOON
Dark Side of the Full Moon delves into the unseen world of maternal mental health in the U.S. We follow two women, Maureen and Jennifer, both of whom suffered from a debilitating disorder when they were pregnant, as they begin a life changing journey to uncover the disconnect within the medical community and give a face and voice to the countless women who have suffered in silence. They uncover the history, the origins, and mythology surrounding the dark side of motherhood, and will attempt to reconstruct the idea of “motherhood," while forging a way to find the best system of care for the 1.3 million women affected each year to find the help they need with ease, without shame, and a quick recovery.
The film highlights inconsistencies of care; questioning the system and doctors as well as ourselves; asking who should be held accountable for the staggering number of women still suffering in silence; and facing barriers to treatment, where professionals and the general public's lack of knowledge mixed with fear can create fatal consequences.
Join us for Q&A with the film’s director, Maureen Fura after the film.
