Wednesday, October 9, 2013,  7pm 
SF Exploratorium, 600 The Embarcadero, Piers 15/17
presented in association with the The Exploratorium’s Cinema Arts Program and 
the West Gallery’s exhibit The Changing Face of Normal
The recent films of filmmaker/activist Ken Paul Rosenthal are beautiful and 
provocative works of conscious cinema that re-envision the way we think and 
speak about our individual and collective mental health in today's chaotic 
world. These transformative films weave personal and political narratives 
through natural and urban landscapes, home movies, and archival social hygiene 
Screening: the complete Mad Dance: A Mental Health Film Trilogy, consisting of 
For Shadows, a contemplative, multi-layered memoir that unravels the tangled 
roots of self-harm while coming to terms with one's shadow; In Light In! a 
darkly humorous, visual essay on the pervasive disease model of mental illness 
in Western Culture; and Crooked Beauty, the much-lauded poetic documentary on 
artist/activist Jacks McNamara and the foundation of the Icarus Project. 
Program also includes Rosenthal’s I My Bike, a cine-poetic work traces the 
conflict between urban space and the body.
