      NCR: Not Criminally Responsible
      Dir: John Kastner | Canada | 2013 | 95 min | 14A

      While gripped by psychosis, a troubled young man stabs a complete stranger six times outside a crowded shopping mall. Declared not criminally responsible on account of mental disorder, the young man is confined to a forensic mental health institution. His victim miraculously survives, haunted by nightmares, but relieved that her attacker has been locked safely away.

      He remains detained in high secure forensic units until a Review Board decision deems him fit to return to community.

       TWELVE years later, she is terrified to learn that he’s out, living in the community under supervision.

       Directed by four-time Emmy® award winner John Kastner, NCR: Not Criminally Responsible offers a timely and provocative examination of mental illness, violence, and the rights of victims. With unprecedented access to the patient, the victim, and the psychiatric facility, the film looks at both sides of the debate and puts a human face on the complex ethical issues raised.


      Presented by Workman Arts’ Rendezvous with Madness Film Festival in partnership with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH).
