People who hear voices talk about their daily inner and social struggles. The film deals with “madness” through an acute awareness of reality and echoes our secret suffering.
In Zabat’s films, learning about dangers and observing disabilities are a way to make shattered realities visible. Such an endeavor presupposes a singular attention to fragility — an ability to listen or empathize that demands one be as close to individuals and as far from institutions as possible. The film resists taxonomy via an intimate acquaintance with an experience of reality that redefines the parameters of normality.Antoine Thirion
