Kino Lorber will release of Out of My Head, the award-winning documentary by Jacki Ochs and Susanna Styron investigating the complex neurological disease, migraine, which afflicts nearly a billion people throughout the world on DVD and digital.
The June 9th release is timed to coincide with National Migraine and Headache Awareness Month.
Out of My Head won Best International Documentary at the 2018 Melbourne Documentary Film Festival, and was an Official Selection of MoMA Doc Fortnight 2018, ReelAbilities Film Festival, Berkshire Film Festival, NHdocs, LA Femme International Film Festival, Breaking Down Barriers International Film Festival, and Film Columbia 2019.
In Out of My Head, a filmmaker sets out to investigate the devastating migraine attacks that have her daughter in their grip. As mother and daughter seek understanding and ever-elusive treatment, we follow them into a bizarre and fascinating world populated by doctors, neuroscientists, other migraineurs, and such unexpected characters as Lewis Carroll, Sigmund Freud, and Joan Didion. We learn that, rather than a terrible headache, migraine is a complex, deeply stigmatized neurological disease afflicting nearly a billion people worldwide. This kaleidoscopic journey, told through interviews, cinema verite, art and animation, explores the history, impact and raw emotion evoked by this unpredictable and confounding condition.
