It looks like Alien Boy, the documentary about the death of James Chasse Jr. in police custody, is almost done. The film looks at Chasse's life, but also the failures of the mental health system and the police department that lead to his death.
The crew, which includes Mental Health Association's Jason Renaud and Mercury alum Matt Davis as one of the writers, is fundraising on Kickstarter to finally complete and release the film. Check out their trailer:
