Les États généraux du film documentaire 2009 Uncertain Viewpoints Valvert

Valérie Mréjen
2009 - France - Couleur - 52'

Valvert is a psychiatric hospital in Marseille, founded in the mid-seventies in a spirit of freedom and openness. The film observes daily life there, painting a portrait of the place through interviews with employees and scenes from the patients' lives. In an atmosphere resolutely opposed to the standard institutional system, the liberty at Valvert reveals various facets of ordinary madness.
