HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A FILM THAT HAS CHANGED YOUR LIFE?
What do Howard Stern, Larry David, John Stossel, Senator Tom Harkin, Pro-Golfer Ben Crane, and thousands of others have in common? They all suffered from debilitating pain until they met Dr. John Sarno.
“We’re in the stone ages, and Dr. Sarno is from another planet. He’s way ahead of his time. It is mind-blowing what he’s uncovered.” – Howard Stern
By filmmakers Suki Hawley, David Beilinson and Michael Galinsky (RUMUR Inc), All the Rage has been ten years in the making. This documentary began as a profile of Dr. John E. Sarno, a back pain and rehabilitation specialist who has pioneered a successful mind body approach to treating chronic pain. Called the “best doctor you’ve never heard of” by Forbes magazine, Dr. Sarno has cured thousands of patients, and sold hundreds of thousands of books, based on the philosophy that knowledge can be the cure. Over the course of shooting, we’ve talked with dozens of notable patients and specialists, and we’ve expanded the focus to an exploration of the connection between our emotions and our health.
28 MILLION in the UK SUFFER FROM CHRONIC PAIN, whilst 10-14% of the population struggle with MODERATE to SEVERELY disabling chronic pain
statistics from research conducted at Imperial College London, Arthritis Research UK and the University of Aberdeen, with funding provided by the British Pain Society and Arthritis Research UK.
Pain is a BIG Problem. The costs of Chronic Pain dwarfs the costs of cancer, heart disease and diabetes combined. Chances are that you or someone you know is currently experiencing some form of chronic pain.
“[After talking to Dr. Sarno,] all of a sudden the pain was gone, it was the closest thing I’ve ever had in my life to a religious experience, and I wept.”- Larry David, creator of Curb Your Enthusiasm & Seinfeld
In early 2000′s, Co-director Michael Galinsky reached out to Dr. Sarno after being told he needed surgery for his back pain. In the mid-80′s, Michael’s father, a psychologist, had read Dr. Sarno’s book Healing Back Pain and overcame years of pain he had attributed to whiplash. A couple of years later, his twin brother was told he needed collar bone surgery to ease pain in his hands. Their father insisted that he go see Dr. Sarno. Within weeks, Michael’s brother was 90% better. Michael then read the book and banished his own intermittent back pain for a decade. But when the pain inexplicably returned, he went to see Dr. Sarno, who helped him through it. We asked to make a film about his work and Dr. Sarno quickly agreed
We shot some footage, but the film got stuck in a holding pattern as we tried to figure out how to tell Dr. Sarno’s story. Then, three years ago, when the pressures of raising two kids, producing a movie, and fixing up a house came crashing down, Michael ended up stuck on his office floor for two solid weeks, unable to even sit up. It quickly became clear that we had to make this movie.
“I read twenty pages [of Dr.Sarno’s book] and my pain almost cut down by 75%”- Jonathan Ames, creator of HBO’s Bored to Death.
Once Michael’s condition improved, he began once again to shoot with Dr. Sarno. In addition, he visited other doctors and healers like Dr. Andrew Weil, Arlene Feinblatt, Ph.D., Dr. Andrea Leonard-Segal, Ashok Gupta, Dr. Dennis Turk, Tom Chi, Ram Dass, and dozens of other mind body medicine and pain experts, as well as patients. Through interviews connecting Dr. Sarno’s work with that of doctors at the forefront of mind body medicine – gastroenterologist Dr. David Clarke, physician Dr. Gabor Mate, and many noted psychologists - All the Rage will help illuminate the powerful impact emotions have on our health.
This film has been a decade-long labor of love, and a search for healing and understanding. We’ve connected with thousands of people along the way, and we’ve seen the data that makes it clear that chronic pain is the biggest health crisis we’re facing.
The exclusive Q&A session afterwards with Georgina Oldfield, Chronic Pain Specialist, and Dr Angela Cooper, Clinical Psychologist working at the Centre for Emotions and Health, a world leading institution offering clinical expertise and conducting research in this area. They will take questions from the audience and discuss a range of issues including:
- Exploring the connection between emotions and health - the pros and cons of taking a mind-body approach to persistent physical symptoms.- How can we move things forward in this area - what approaches might we use together?
