PAIN BRAIN is a documentary about chronic pain and a massive neuroscience study that uncovers just how wrong we are about it. Following the personal lives of three professionals involved with this study- a Medical Doctor, a Scientist, and a Talk Therapist- PAIN BRAIN balances scientific breakthrough alongside intimate access to patients and their providers fighting with everything to ‘please please please just make it go away’.
PAIN BRAIN is a unique collaboration. Executive Produced by Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire, Girl Rising and Mowgli), Directed by Mitch Dickman (Variety’s top 10 documaker to watch, Hanna Ranch, Rolling Papers and Casting JonBenet), Tim Kaminski (Assistant Editor on Chasing Coral and Being Evel), and Laurie Polisky (background in film studies with neuroscience degree).
