Gerard Barrett’s ‘BRAIN ON FIRE’ TO PREMIERE AT TIFF August 18, 2016


Gerard Barrett’s ‘Brain on Fire’ will have its world premiere at this years Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

Starring Chloe Grace Moretz, Carrie-Ann Moss, Richard Armitage and Tyler Perry, Brain on Fire follows Susannah, ‘a rising journalist at the New York Post who mysteriously starts having seizures and hearing voices. As weeks go by and Susannah rapidly descends into insanity, she moves inexplicably from violence to catatonia. Following a series of outbursts, misdiagnoses, and a prolonged hospital stay, a lucky, last-minute intervention by one doctor finally gives her a diagnosis and hope to rebuild her life.’

Based on Susannah Cahalan’s bestselling memoir, Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness, the Film underwent Post Production here at Screen Scene and Ardmore Sound.
