Film series on mental health in Indonesia

From Raluca Szabo:

This looks amazing.  From the facebook blurb, which claims this is the first film series on mental health and illness in the developing world:

“Afflictions: Culture and Mental Illness in Indonesia” is a 6-part series of ethnographic films on severe mental illness in Indonesia, based on material drawn from 12 years of person-centered research by writer/director Robert Lemelson. The trilogy, which follows 6 individuals of different ages and backgrounds, explores the relationship between culture, mental illness, and first-person experience.

I will definitely be trying to acquire this one for classes.
