Realign was a practice based research project that aimed to tackle stigma in Irish Media. The below is a documentary that tells the real stories of those living with schizophrenia through the use of actors.
Once we gathered the first-hand accounts of the lives of people living with schizophrenia, I began writing a script. As those we spoke with wanted to remain anonymous, we decided to write a script that would use their real world experiences, and time their actual words, to communicate their stories. This was effective in that it creates a narrative, while also remaining authentic. The script contains four people, each with different ages and stories.
