About this submission

Alice lost years of her life believing she was Christ. In this short documentary, we follow Alice’s journey to rebuild her life and keep psychotic episodes at bay. She reflects on how she has reclaimed her experiences of being ‘Alice Christ’ in order to inform her faith. We visit the ‘tea parties’ she organises for other people also on journeys with mental illness; feeling connected with others was an important part of her own recovery. Nonetheless she has to stay vigilant to this day: too much excitement or distress could bring on another psychotic episode.
