  • Panhandle PBS and "Independent Lens" will host a new season of Indie Lens Pop-Up, the neighborhood screening series that brings people together for community-driven conversations around documentaries from the award-winning PBS series "Independent Lens" on Panhandle PBS.

    The screenings are free, and each will be followed by a panel discussion featuring Amarillo-area experts, community leaders and more.

    Through intimate stories of patients, families, and medical providers, "Bedlam" immerses us in the national crisis surrounding the care of the severely mentally ill. Over five years, the film goes inside one of America’s busiest psychiatric emergency rooms, into jails where psychiatric patients are warehoused, and to the homes — and homeless encampments — of mentally ill members of our communities.

    A panel discussion about mental health in Amarillo will follow, featuring Jeff Justus (Amarillo Fire Department), Sara Northrup (Texas Panhandle Centers) and more TBA.
