    The film 'No Kidding, Me 2!' is from Joe Pantoliano of The Sopranos, Memento, and The Matrix. He made this documentary directorial debut as part of his fight against the stigma and shame of mental/brain disease. Nearly 100 million Americans suffer in isolation. Here Pantoliano’s candid and humorous discussions with his family shed light on their struggles with clinical depression. It also includes compelling stories of a brain surgeon with bipolar disorder, a psychologist with ADHD, and three high school students managing bipolar disorder and clinical depression. Each discusses the struggle before they were diagnosed, including attempts at self-medication and other destructive behavior. Hope and encouragement are discovered when, managing their own recovery, they realize they are not alone. A discussion with refreshments will follow the viewing of this film.
