(Study Guide) Angels and Demons
What does it feel like to lose your mind and can you get it back again? In seeking to answer these questions, Andrew Denton journeys into the world of mental illness, a world that's often invisible because - in our fear - we choose to look away.
Angels and Demons would be suitable for middle and senior secondary students as well as tertiary students in a number of human and social science areas including Psychology, Health and Personal Development, Biology and Media Studies. In providing a human face to the many aspects of mental illness, including how it affects young people in caring for family members with a mental illness, the film opens up this subject in a compassionate and empathetic way. We see the realities of the daily lives of people living with mental illnesses, their suffering and their joys, the angels and the demons.
