Imagining Robert: The film

IMAGINING ROBERT, a one-hour film, is a story of two brothers, one who has suffered the horrors and sadness of mental illness for thirty-eight years--the other, a prize-winning novelist who has been his brother's primary caretaker through those years.

Based on the life experiences of Jay and Robert Neugeboren, IMAGINING ROBERT is a true story--true not only for the protagonists, but for millions of other Americans. The project includes a one-hour documentary film, study guides, and public screenings and discussions designed to create dialogue about the issues. The goal of this production is to stimulate national debate and discussion about the impact of chronic mental illness on families, and about how this impact can play out across decades and across whole lives.
