As part of film fete being organised by Mental Health Action Trust

Kozhikode will be part of the Global Web screening of Hidden Pictures , an award-winning film on global mental health by Delaney Ruston on Thursday, World Mental Health Day.

The movie will be screened at 6.30 p.m. at Nalanda auditorium as the first movie of a three-day film festival on mental health being organised by the Mental Health Action Trust (MHAT) in association with the Bankmen’s Club and the Bankmen’s Film Society.

The innovative media event, titled ‘1 Film, 1 Worldwide Discussion,’ will bring together a broad group of international organisations and advocates to host live and online screenings of Hidden Pictures and create a global dialogue about mental health, a release said.

The producer of Hidden Pictures is physician and film-maker Delaney Ruston, who grew up in the shadow of her father’s schizophrenia and has spent years caring for the underserved.

Ms. Ruston has been producing films and creating social campaigns on mental health topics for over a decade with the aim of increasing compassion and promoting action, the release added.
