Project Main Details

Willard Lawrence 
This is a documentary about Willard State Hospital (1869-1995), which is an old asylum in the Finger Lakes region of NY. I will be portraying the experiences of 3 patients during their stay at Willard. The visual will consist mostly of shots of the present day condition of the ayslum, while the sound will be readings of old patient-doctor converations, journal entrires, and letters. All of these patients are deceased, that is why I am looking for actors to represent them.

Patient: Lawrence Marek
Diagnosed with Schizophrenia
He was a hard-working, well-liked man, who exerted authority, even over some staff members. He worked as the institution's grave digger. He was very quiet, mostly due to his heavy accent and language barrier. Claimed to see angels and hear the voice of God.

Lawrence Marek: I am ashamed to tell you.

Dr: What did you do?

LM: I was a liar the whole of my life.
