THE DIVIDED BRAIN is a mind-altering film that will radically change your understanding of the world and yourself. Renowned psychiatrist, neuroscientist and author Dr. Iain McGilchrist, takes us on a journey to understand how our brains have made us a powerful species, while simultaneously creating social and environmental problems that threaten our very survival and the future of our planet. When a brain is in balance, individuals and cultures thrive. While society searches for solutions, McGilchrist argues that the real problem is inside our heads.
Featuring a special appearance by actor John Cleese.
