‘Breaking the chains’ part of the Royal Anthropological Institute collection

Yesterday the contract was signed and Breaking the chains has now officially been licensed (in a non-exclusive world-wide agreement) for distribution (DVD and online) through the Royal Anthropological Institute https://www.therai.org.uk/

This means that the film, and the stories and issues in it, will be archived in the biggest collection of anthropological films used for educational purposes, which contributes to this project’s original objective to increase awareness and educate about human right abuses against people with mental health problems.

Thank you RAI and thanks to the people who have supported Breaking the chains so far, more to come!
