Witness Film Releases Documentary About Thomas Szasz

February 4, 2013

In September 2012, Thomas Szasz, M.D., a controversial figure in psychiatry who “wanted to demolish the profession”, died at his home in Manlius, New York. Witness Films was approached by longtime collaborator Philip Singer, Ph.D. (Professor Emeritus, Anthropology, Oakland University), to edit a documentary based on an interview that had been recorded with Szasz a few years earlier. The final piece, just finished, already has interest from a number of institutions and promises to be the authoritative statement on the beliefs, and death, of this iconoclastic figure.  See more.
