DirectorCast

Raymond Depardon

France / 2017 / 87 minutes / DCP / Color

All patients who have been involuntarily committed into a psychiatric institution are brought before a judge within 12 days, when a crucial decision has to be made – will the patient stay or leave? Granted unique access to these hearings, renowned documentarian Depardon (Caught in the Act, 1994) turns his lens towards desperate, broken souls, as the patients tell stories of the dark lives they lead. Distressing yet enlightening, this film gives a voice to those who have been voiceless, revealing depths of humanity.
