Stories About Madness

A Feature film by Paule Muxel, Bertrand de Solliers

Produced by M. DE S. FILMS, Julianto Films

Production year : 1993

    Synopsis

    This is no essay on the history of psychiatry but rather fragments of stories from the lives of indivuduals recounted through the testimonies of people who have lived in a big asylum - a psychiatric hospital in the region of Paris, from the doctor to the patient, the nurse to the administrator... Through a portrait of this place, typical of health care establishments in western and westernised countries, the film attempts to deal with the fear of otherness, a fear which generates exclusion.
