THE CREATIVE HIGH
A documentary film
Directed by Adriana Marchione
Produced by Dianne Griffin
Nine Artists in recovery from addiction are transformed by creativity in their turbulent search for identity and freedom.
“One needn’t be in recovery or an artist to experience the transformative power of art. The Creative High taps into our basic, profound impulses to reveal, rage, let go, vent, invent and reinvent. That is, to create and express.” — Michael Fox, Journalist, Film Critic, KQED
“The Creative High is a moving testimony to the power of healing through art, authenticity, and connection. These stories help counter the romantic notion that one 'has to suffer to be creative' and illustrates instead that it is the transformation of suffering into art that is truly creative.” — Susan Raeburn, PhD, Clinical Psychologist
