Free The Mind
6. June 2012

By the power of the mind

SHOWN AT A SIMULTANEOUS PREMIERE ON JUNE THE 6TH.
Was followed by a live-transmitted discussion with the leading brain scientist Richard Davidson among others.

Free the Mind is the amazing story of how one man’s vision changes three persons fate – not only with far reaching perspectives for them, but also for humanity in the future.

Professor Richard Davidson is one of the world’s leading brain scientist. He has set out to explore how to physically change the brain – only by the power of the mind. Steve and Rich are two of America’s thousands of war veterans. Their lives are turned into painful nightmare: They are afflicted by fear of being with other people, they can’t sleep without medication and are suffering from feelings of guilt over what they saw and did to others during the war. Will is 5 years old and have ADHD and severe anxiety attacks. His parents would like to try alternative methods than the traditional and addictive medication.

Can Professor Richard Davidson make a difference? Can he save them from their miserable lives and help them to a normal life? Free the Mind follows the three subjects on their courageous journey into themselves.
