Guest: Director, Asher Penn

Local Vancouver filmmaker Asher Penn sits down with Gabor Maté with the question- “You’re a best-selling author but I can’t actually find out that much information about your story.” Maté candidly discusses his own struggles and pain, his complicated behaviours and fractured relationships.

“A literally awesome document of self-deception and self-awareness that offers the viewer a new door into themselves and the world. I hope you see Asher’s Physician Heal Thyself at a time when you are able to let in with complexity.”
~ Sarah Shulman: Fulbright scholar, Judaic Studies, best selling author of “Conflict is not Abuse”

Physician Heal Thyself isn’t looking to defend or debunk Maté’s practices. Rather, it is a probing look at the origin story of an influential mind.”
~ Pat Mullen, POV Film Review

“Wonderful, a really great documentary with beautifully designed sound and music.”
~ Atom Egoyan: Canadian Filmmaker, Cannes Grand Prix award
