Description:
Guilty Except for Insanity: Maddening journeys through an American Asylum is a documentary film directed by psychology professor Jan Haaken. The film follows the journeys of individuals over a period of a year who enter the Oregon State Hospital under the "guilty except for insanity" plea. Site of the filming of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, based on the novel by Ken Kesey, the Oregon State Hospital has been the focus of intense controversy, including charges by the U.S. Department of Justice of massive civil rights abuses of patients. This documentary tells a different side of the story - one from inside this asylum and from the perspectives of staff and patients.
