A Drop of Sunshine
One of Mixed Media Productions’ first independent films, ‘A Drop of Sunshine’ went on to be selected in a number of festivals, and won multiple awards, including the 59th National Film Award (Rajat Kamal) for Best Educational Film in 2012. The film takes a contrarian stance on Schizophrenia, believed to be incurable. It went on to be used widely across the world to initiate discussions on alternate ways to look at mental health. Reshma Valliappan, the protagonist, is now a well known, and much feted mental health advocate.
