KÜCHENPSYCHOLOGIE – ÜBER DAS VERRÜCKEN
Director: Marie Johanna Weil
Documentary | D | 2019
50 min | Stereo
53rd Hof International Film Festival
Getting well is an expedition, a research trip – not a package holiday. The director talks about her experience in psychiatric treatment and her path afterwards. The narrative is personal and yet distanced and reflected. It is about questions and solutions, about the human struggle for one’s own path and a place in the world. The specific question leads to general human themes such as identity, dealing with fear, searching for meaning. Interviews accompany the director’s story and reflections. They show different positions on how to look at the phenomenon of going crazy. It becomes clear that the questions are too complex for simple answers. The film pleads for open exchange and individual research.
