Film Follows Berkshire Folk Artist's Journey With Bipolar Disorder

Jul 16, 2015

A film getting its local debut tonight in Great Barrington discusses mental illness and how people live with it by following a folk singer from western Massachusetts who has bipolar disorder. Meg Hutchinson’s journey is weaved between interviews with medical professionals and others working in the field of mental illness in Pack Up Your Sorrows. Hutchinson spoke with WAMC’s Berkshire Bureau Chief Jim Levulis.

The sold-out showing at the Triplex Cinema in Great Barrington begins at 7. A talk with Hutchinson and the film’s directors will follow. 

The documentary will also be shown at Bard College at Simon’s Rock September 17th. Click here for more information.
