Have you ever wondered about the link between genius and mental illness?
Through Crazy Talents we want to dismantle the stigma surrounding mental illness by pointing out that it can affect anyone. In this animated video we explore the lives of iconic historical figures - such as Michelangelo, Caravaggio, and Churchill - all of which have struggled with their mental health.
From Beethoven's intense emotional spectrum, likely driven by a severe bipolar disorder, which contributed to the creation of his revolutionary compositions, to Van Gogh's struggle with schizophrenia-induced hallucinations, vividly expressed in works like "Wheatfield with Crows," we'll shed light on how these challenges shaped their extraordinary creativity.
Watch our video to discover the inspiring stories that explore the human spirit's triumph over mental health hurdles!
