LE MONDE NORMAL
A documentary by Hélène Risser – 65 min
I grew up in eastern France, in a hospital inaugurated in 1973 by my parents, both psychiatrists. Breaking with the asylum tradition, they experimented new ways of treating patients.
Today, this hospital has changed: walls have risen, and doors have closed. Meeting the eyes of those who used to live there, and the ones who still do, children, adults, doctors and patients, I return onsite to revive the medical utopia of the 70s and to confront it to today’s reality of the hospital.
