Running From Crazy

This doc­u­men­tary exam­ines the per­son­al jour­ney of mod­el and actress Mariel Hem­ing­way, the grand­daugh­ter of Ernest Hem­ing­way, as she strives for a greater under­stand­ing of her fam­i­ly his­to­ry of sui­cide and men­tal ill­ness. Through stun­ning archival footage of the three Hem­ing­way sis­ters and inti­mate verite moments with Mariel her­self, the film exam­ines the remark­able — though often heart­break­ing — Hem­ing­way lega­cy. As Mariel comes to terms with the tragedies of her family’s past that have shaped the course of her life, deeply hid­den secrets come to light and truths emerge. Through it all, Mariel finds a way to over­come a sim­i­lar fate for her­self and her daugh­ters, brings aware­ness to an issue she’s deeply pas­sion­ate about, and dis­cov­ers an inner strength and peace.
