​Interview with Lucy Winer,  Producer / Director  soon to be released documentary Kings Park: Stories of an American Institution.


I was thrilled to interview and photograph Lucy Winer, Director/Producer of award winning documentaries for over thirty years.   I met Lucy at the screening of her most recent documentary, Kings Park, at the NYU Langone/Bellevue Hospitals.  Kings Park is about Lucy Winers commitment to the female violent ward of Kings Park State Hospital on June 21, 1967, following a series of failed suicide attempts at the age of 17.  Over thirty years later, now a veteran documentary filmmaker, Lucy returns to Kings Park for the first time since her discharge.  Her journey back sparks a decade - long effort to face her past and learn the story of the now abandoned institution that once held her captive. Her meeting with other former patients, their families, and the hospital staff reveal the painful legacy of our state hospital system and the crisis left by demise. Kings Park is about a teenager’s traumatic experience of her commitment in a state hospitals female violent ward and her triumph over depression.   Kings Park is a frightening tale about Lucy’s struggle to survive in a  “mental institution” in the 1960’s.     Kings Park: Stories From an American Mental Institution will soon be released but you can view the trailer at the following link: http://kingsparkmovie.com
