DAN AND MARGOT is an intimate look at Margot, who not long ago was stalked and tormented by a person who never really existed. After learning she has schizophrenia, Margot tries to reclaim the years that she lost to the illness by gaining a new perspective on her own coming of age.
"Their portrait of Sosa-Sims’s 20-something longtime friend, who discovers she has schizophrenia, is unsettling in that it reminds us how mercilessly pop culture has stigmatized this complex mental illness. Yet it’s also a hopeful and enlightening meditation on the potential to overcome it."
