Larry Davidson. My artistic process was mostly on autopilot during the filming. I was holding down two university teaching jobs, living in New York City and traveling to Portland almost every six weeks. I lacked the perspective to think about many moments artistically.
I also went back and got interviews with his two amazing friends to round out the story. The film and my commitment to it helped me survive. I love when viewers marvel at our creative eccentricities that were, for me part of growing up. How has that worked? How has he been since then? We have to remember that at its very best a documentary film is a structured representation of reality. The ending I feared was that things would reach a point where Duanne killed himself, was killed, or killed someone else. Thankfully, that has not transpired. Nor has any semblance of recovery or even insight.
So it was necessary to provide an ending without being disingenuous to either my viewers or the situation. Not much has changed for Duanne.
He has been in and out of the system four times since the film was finished. The police have said Duanne has used up their good will and they cannot look out for him any longer. But he will never be forced into treatment in Portland unless he commits a heinous crime. Many others deal with issues like those you describe.
Do you have any advice for them? My advice is that you accept that this is going to be a long haul and very difficult. You will hit a dead-end. Every step will be dependent on what state you live in, how much money and other resources you have, how educated you are, how much support you have from your friends and community. Get down to the very hard work of accepting the reality that you or your loved one has a mental illness just as you would accept that someone has cancer or kidney failure.
