Here's another clip which depicts mental illness in Indonesia. This film is one of the first films on mental illness in the developing world.
From the youtube commentary:
Based on footage shot over 12 years in Bali and Java (Indonesia). The film explores the relationship between culture, mental illness, and personal experience. The role of traditional medicine vs. psychiatric treatment, family support, community rejection or acceptance, and beliefs about its causes are explored in three case studies.
