WHAT: This special benefit screening of Guilty Except for Insanity, a documentary film directed by psychology professor Jan Haaken of Portland State University, follows the journeys of individuals over a period of a year who enter the Oregon State Hospital under the "guilty except for insanity" plea. Site of the filming of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, based on the novel by Ken Kesey, the Oregon State Hospital has been the focus of intense controversy, including charges by the U.S. Department of Justice of massive civil rights abuses of patients. This documentary tells a different side of the story-one from inside this asylum and from the perspectives of patients and staff. The benefit will help to raise completion funds for the project as well as provide an opportunity for community feedback before the completed film is submitted to festivals.
