A series of film screenings that explore and challenge preconceived ideas about mental illness. All screenings are free but bookable in advance.
The tranquil woods of the Loire Valley embrace the La Borde psychiatric clinic, an asylum in the truest sense of the word, where patients find sanctuary and repose.
In this documentary from 1997, patients and staff work together to perform the modernist, absurdist classic "Operette", by Witold Gombrowicz whose dialogue is more nonsensical than that of the patients themselves.
Programmed by Stuart Sloan.
Part of The Fragmented Mind public programme.
