A SUMMER IN THE CAGE is filmmaker Ben Selkow's feature-length documentary that chronicles his friend Sam's battle with bipolar disorder since before he was diagnosed. The film follows Sam for six years as he suffers delusional manic episodes, battles paralyzing depressions, and tries to escape the legacy of his bipolar father. But as this dramatic story unfolds and heads to an explosive standoff, it also becomes a unique tale about friendship and the ethical responsibilities of a documentary filmmaker.
