The international medical film festival is back for 2022
This year's theme: connection
Join us for a night of great *short* films and great discussions on the nature of connection. A little glimpse on the questions we will explore:
Connection with the Self:
How do you stand up after reaching rock bottom? How can you meet yourself again when you can't recognise yourself anymore? Who would you find if you were to dive into the abyss of all the things you want to forget? What fights are there left to fight before you can connect with yourself again?
Connection with Reality:
Does life always make sense? Lose yourself into another conscience, where associations run loose and free! Where the big world becomes a meditation of music and transforming colours, of stimuli that do not ask for interpretation. Maybe an unstoppable chaos? A delusional mood? Or the mind of a genius? Who will hold you when the entire reality disintegrates?
Connection with Others:
Have you ever met a normal family> a normal person? And where would you draw the line? How does mental illness influence our connections with others? Imagine a world where all the mysteries and uncertainties of diagnosis are resolved, where all the answers can be reached effortlessly. What use would there be left for a doctor then anyway? A utopia or a dystopia?
