LIFT Magazine, Nov. 2002, v. 22, no. 6, pp. 12-13

This magazine article describes the Rendezvous with Madness festival and its mandate to disseminate information and raise awareness about mental health. The author describes Daniel Cockburn's Metronome described as rhythmic multi-screen film with found footage and Ed Gass-Donnelly's triptych of films which explores self-destructive characters. Listing other relevant films, the author raises some of the issues panelists had with the portrayal (or lack thereof) of mental illness.
