Manic is a Canadian documentary film, directed by Kalina Bertin and released in 2017.[1] The film depicts Bertin's efforts, in response to a family history of bipolar disorder, to investigate parts of her father's prior life in Montserrat that she did not know about.[2]

The film premiered at the 2017 Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival.


When Daniel Cross won Hot Docs' Don Haig Award, he selected Bertin as the recipient of a $5,000 grant for emerging women documentary filmmakers.[3]

The film received two Canadian Screen Award nominations at the 6th Canadian Screen Awards, for Best Feature Length Documentary and Best Editing in a Documentary (Anouk Deschênes).[4]
