Cured is an incredible new film that illuminates a pivotal yet largely unknown chapter in the struggle for LGBT equality: the campaign that led the American Psychiatric Association in the US to remove homosexuality from its list of mental illnesses in 1973. 

Illustrated by the shocking personal testimonies of LGBT people who were forced into psychiatric and medical treatment, Cured takes audiences behind the scenes of an absolutely riveting narrative to chronicle the strategy and tactics that led to a crucial victory in the movement for LGBT rights.

"Astonishing. One of the best documentaries of this or any year" - BFI
