OC 87 the obsessive compulsive, major depression, bipolar, Asperger's movie ( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A documentary about Bud Clayman who struggles with OCD and Asperger's syndrome and how his mental illness interrupted his film making career. Thirty years later, he is directing the movie of his journey to recovery. Although his film's stated purpose is "to show the hell" that mental illness has wrought on his life, co-director Bud Clayman has another, equally important goal: shedding light on the path to recovery. Through first-person narration, an evocative and wide-ranging collage of visuals, and interviews with Clayman's parents and others close to him, this documentary clearly depicts what he has gone through after being diagnosed over the years with depression, bipolar disorder, Asperger's syndrome, and Harm OCD -- an affliction characterized by thoughts of hurting oneself and others. But the movie also demonstrates the importance of facing challenges and taking action -- whether it's with small steps, such as venturing out for a night of karaoke, or big ones, as Clayman has proven with this cinematic endeavor. Decades ago (hence "OC 87") he gave up on his dream of making films. Here, he takes up the quest again, and the results are both inspiring and informative

2 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Saint of 9/11 presents the remarkable journey of Father Mychal Judge. Compassionate champion of the needy and forgotten, a beloved New York Fire Department Chaplain, Father Judge was a humble priest who wrestled with his own private demons while touching others in powerful and miraculous ways. Throughout his career as a friar, he lived a life of witness, action and love. He provided hope, warmth, compassion, and acceptance. Saint of 9/11 weaves interviews with friend and colleagues such as Hillary Rodham Clinton, Bill Clinton, Rudy Giuliani and Malachi McCourt, congregants and Mychal's own words. The film portrays Mychal's life as a spiritual adventure and an honest embrace of life. Saint of 9/11 is the story of a life's journey interrupted. Inspired by his life, the documentary embraces Mychal's full humanity
Sermon on the mound by John McCutcheon ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With the release of Sermon on the Mound McCutcheon brings together two lifelong loves: music and baseball. Whether honoring the games heroes (Roberto Clemente, Cal Ripkin Jr., Jackie Robinson, PeeWee Reese), tackling the game's foul balls (steroids, John Rocker), celebrating street ball and Little League, or distilling it all down to its essence (the universal and heart-rending "Catch"), once again, McCutcheon's pen and eye are wise, bittersweet, and wickedly funny

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"I would just go to places that beckon to me ... traumatized people, an empty canvas in the corner of the world. I have canvases, I have sketch pads, I have tubes and brushes. This is my art: it doesn't have meaning and it doesn't last forever, but it lives in the human spirit as hope and joy."--Lily Yeh, in the opening frames, speaking about how she came to seek out broken places, and even more, broken people and showing them the healing power of art
