Kenneth Paul Rosenberg has been making award-winning documentaries since medical school. While a medical student at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, he also studied film at NYU. He co-produced and co-directed “An Alzheimer’s Story”, a film about a family living with Alzheimer’s Disease, filmed over the course of eighteen months. He is also the editor of medical textbooks and author of popular books including Bedlam which was published by Avery/Penguin Random House.
Through intimate stories, Bedlam plunges into the national crisis surrounding the care of the seriously mentally ill. It brings us inside the lives of mentally ill people and addresses the crisis, its connection to homeless Americans, and our nation’s disastrous care approach.
