Kazuhiro Soda: Making Images Speak

Mental Kazuhiro Soda

Film index A to Z

Seishin

An award-winner at the Busan and Dubai film festivals, Mental takes us inside Dr. Yamamoto’s psychiatric clinic, a disturbingly threadbare operation. Recording the daily routine of the patients and caregivers, along with the complexity of their situation and acceptance of illness, the director exposes the social crisis and economic misery behind their suffering. (ACO)

Presented in collaboration with the Japan Foundation, la Chaire René Malo, the Concordia University’s Studio Arts Department Visiting Artist’s Speaker’s Series Conversations in Contemporary Art and the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema - Concordia University
