Henry Coombes: Love and Lithium
14:00 on 29 April 2018
Love and Lithium is an experimental art film combining documentary with cinematic surreal-ism, telling the story of a larger than life Glaswegian, Marcella Macintosh. A hell-raiser in her youth, who drank with legends such as Vivian Stanshall, she has been in recovery for the past 30 years. In the early 2000’s she was mis-diagnosed with a mental health condition and given a prescription of Lithium against her will. Her case helped to change Scottish Law and now a single psychiatrist cannot make a compulsory prescription without going through an ethical board. The film weaves together Marcella’s memories, the present and her hopes for the future with reflections on a life lived to the full.
