ce qu'il reste de la folie, What remains of mental illness

In Paris last month I saw a most extraordinary movie  filmed near and in a psychaitric hospital in Dakar Senegal.

Joris Lachaise is the film maker

Two of my favourite moments.

From the tongue-in-cheel psychaitrist to a young man " Look you have seen ten marabouts ( a marabout is a shaman) isnt'it time you tried Western medicine ?"

Another one from the lady who does most of the narrative, to the same psychiatrist " Doctor, you have been treating me for 18 years, what is my daignosis ?......"

I hope this film will come to Canada soon.
