Thin Line
Canada / 32:00 / 1977 / sound / colour
A candid journey inside the Penetanguishene maximum-security hospital for the criminally insane. Treatments with alcohol and Amytol are filmed, and the treatment program at Penetang is compared to prison incarceration. Critics said; "THIN LINE may be a real first for documentaries on mental hospitals" (Saturday Night Magazine), and "One of the most powerful documentaries ever made" - Peter Harcourt, Who's Who.
