The Lunatics' Ball

Film (Excerpts) – 1999

I really wanted the part because the heart of the story is about someone who puts it all on the line, who is willing to do anything, and I found that a very impressive quality.
– Lead actor Russel Walder
While drug-based treatments for the mentally ill may make their lives more comfortable, are they stimulating change, empowering ... or encouraging patients to help themselves? My feeling is that more often than not, in the absence of love and personal attention, some patients are trapped into drug-based programmes and drug-based lives.
– Writer/Director Michael Thorp
