Join Dr. Brewer for a very special MyNDTALK 'Talk To Me' segment with Director Brian Lindstrom about his documentary, "The The Alien Boy".  Alien Boy is the true story of a young schizophrenic man who was brutally killed by police. "Using interviews, personal writings, archival footage, official documents and videotaped depositions of the involved police officers, the film examines James Chasse's life and the police actions and decisions that led to his death. What emerges is an intimate and complex story of one man's life, the Chasse family’s struggle for justice, and a city and a system grappling with accountability."  One reviewer described The Alien Boy as packing  "a horrifying punch: intimate, terrible & true.”
