Spiritual Sniffles

Mike Mills' latest film is Does Your Sould Have a Cold, a documentary for the IFC channel. As you might guess, it's about pharmacological treatments for depression. Knowing that, you'll probably also guess that it questions their increasingly frequent diagnosis. What is less obvious is the the film concentrates on the Japanese experience with antidepressants, and of the impact of American thinking about depression on Japanese culture.

The Film Lot have a good interview with Mills online now, as well as a link to the trailer. You can also download the trailer directly.

Prep yourself by watching Mills' feature film Thumbsucker which is also concerned with the medication of psychological conditions.
