Asylum

A Short film by Catherine Bernstein

Produced by Paris-Brest Productions

Production year : 2008

    Synopsis

    A big cardboard box forgotten at the bottom of a cellar. Lots of rolls of 8 mm film. With rare indications of place and of date. Family films and images shot in about twenty psychiatric hospitals. Archives forgotten by Georges Daumézon, psychiatrist. Catherine Bernstein appropriated this soundless, polymorphic and incomplete equipment. From the meeting of these two film-makers was born Asylum.
