Synopsis

In 1960 Mario Ruspoli filmed a documentary in the psychiatric hospital of St-Alban, in Lozère. A brave decision at a time when mental illness was a taboo subject brushed under the carpet by society.

Subject

“Using his wonderful images, Mario Ruspoli invites us to experience mental illness for the first time, and to understand not only that people are not mad, but that the mad are all people.”
