Two Brilliant Documentary Filmmakers Need Your Help!


Doug Blush and Lisa Klein are a husband-and-wife documentary filmmaking team who are raising funds to complete OF TWO MINDS, a documentary about the challenges of living with bipolar disorder.

Doug is a producer/editor who has worked on such acclaimed documentaries as WORDPLAY, IOUSA, FREAKONOMICS, and AN INVISIBLE WAR, which just won the 2012 Sundance Film Festival’s Audience Award for Best Documentary.

Lisa’s attachment to this project is personal: her older sister Tina was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in the 80s and died in 1994.  The film is made in Tina’s honor, “in the hope that many will feel both empowered and less alone in dealing with bipolar after watching.”

Doug and Lisa have launched a Kickstarter Campaign to raise the money needed to complete the film. Of the $32,400 required, they have raised to date almost $11,000. If you or anyone close to you is affected by mood disorders, please consider donating to the Kickstarter Campaign — even as little as $5 helps.

Full disclosure, and another reason you should donate: Doug and Lisa are two of my smartest, funniest, biggest-heartiest, and most talented friends. I’ve seen footage from the film and IT ROCKS!! (You can see footage as well on the Kickstarter page). Please give what you can and let’s get this puppy on a screen near you.

About perilsofdivorcedpauline

I am a survivor of a world-class gnarly divorce. My dastardly ex-husband is suing me for full custody of my son, and more time with my daughter. He’s super-rich and I’m super-not. You get the picture.
