Awareness Film Festival Official Selection TWO WAYS HOME film on Bi-Polar Disorder couldn’t be more relevant as we approach Mental Ilness Awareness Week October 6-12. 

LOS ANGELES, CA (October 2, 2019) — Director Ron Vignone and Actress/Producer Tanna Frederick’s independent film circulating the festival circuit is definitely getting noticed as the nation is seeing a rise in reports by the media regarding mental illness. Their movie highlights bipolar disorder while also touching on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). As recent high-profile events in the news should make clear, not even mental health advocates are invulnerable. 

TWO WAYS HOME is about a young woman returning home to rural Iowa while balancing her bi-polar disorder and struggling to care for her veteran grandfather, who is suffering with PTSD from wartime service, all while trying to reconcile with her estranged 12-year-old daughter. With an original screenplay by Richard Schinnow, TWO WAYS HOME was filmed and produced entirely in Iowa.

The narrative explores what society has deemed, until just recently, a taboo subject—mental illness. Without diminishing the film, TWO WAYS HOME both educates the audience about bi-polar disorder while bringing awareness. Frederick and Vignone are collaborating with NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) who work tirelessly to remove judgment and stigma from mental illness.

The film recently won the “Women Empowerment Award“ Jury Prize at the 2019 Women Texas Film Festival, and continues to screen at various film festivals nationwide.

The film will screen in Los Angeles at The Awareness Festival October 8, 2019 at 6:30p.m. at Regal Cinemas LA: 1000 W Olympic Blvd., Los Angeles, Ca 90015.
