Every Little Thing - STAGE | Thespie

Famed documentarian Nicolas Philibert turns his attention to the La Borde Psychiatric Clinic, a mental institution whose patients and staff stage theatrical performances every summer. Focusing on the 1995 production of Polish modernist Witold Gombrowicz's parodic play, Operetta, Philibert's fascinating film reveals the porous boundary between sanity and madness. Philibert's unobtrusive observations accumulate into a powerful argument for La Borde's non-judgmental institutional philosophy, and force us to re-examine conventional assumptions about what is normal and what is not.
