Asylum, mental health documentary following psychiatrist R.D. Laing on DVD

Asylum, mental health documentary following psychiatrist R.D. Laing on DVD for the first time on 10 August 2015.

Trailblazing psychiatrist R.D. Laing changed the way mental illness was treated with his unique approach to therapy and in the early 1970s he allowed a film crew access to a group of his patients in one of the most incredible fly-on-the-wall documentaries ever made, Asylum. Now this fascinating film makes its UK DVD debut courtesy of OEG Classic Movies.

With David Tennant on board to play the renowned Glasgow-born analyst Ronald David Laing in a major new biopic, this timely release gives an insight into mental illness as filmmaker Peter Robinson and his crew enter the world of the schizophrenic residents of a hospital in Archway, London.

Filmed over a seven-week period the film takes us behind the doors and into the lives of mentally ill patients and Laing’s controversial approach to healing them through compassion and freedom.

Originally released in 1972 this groundbreaking film comes to UK DVD for the first time on 10 August 2015 complete with a slew of fascinating special features.
