Famed Broadway writer, director and composer Elizabeth Swados has struggled with depression her whole life. In "My Depression (The Up and Down and Up of It)," she shares her experiences with this often-misunderstood condition to make a difficult and sometimes taboo topic more accessible and understandable. The film is based on Swados’ graphic memoir, “My Depression: A Picture Book,” and features the voices of Sigourney Weaver (as Swados), Steve Buscemi, Fred Armisen, and Dan Fogler. Simultaneously heartfelt and entertaining, "My Depression" illuminates the symptoms, emotions, and side effects of the disorder through witty animation, comedy, and unique musical numbers.
