Undergrowth of the Senseless
Martine Deyres
2015 - France - Couleur - 89'

From his office in the La Borde clinic, the famous psychiatrist Jean Oury traces a lifetime of welcoming madness. A precious testimony by one of the major players in twentieth-century psychiatry, the film invites us to share the quality of a meeting whose stakes exceed the clinical field. By bringing us close to a subtle understanding of psychosis, he invites each of us to an essential conquest of humanity.
