Els oblidats dels oblidats (2011)
1h 28min · Documentary, Drama · 4 November 2011
Africa. The Ivory Coast. With no public health system, the ailing must find a way to pay for their medical care and treatments. A cost most cannot cover. For the mentally ill, whose illness is blamed on witchcraft, the situation is even worse: often chained to trees for years, they are left to the elements. Enter Gregoire Ahongbonon, a one-time tire repairman who now scours city and country, searching out the abandoned and abused mentally ill. The Forgotten follows his inspiring work as he literally breaks their chains, heals them as best he can and reinserts them into a society that often rejects them. A compelling social drama, The Forgotten asks the question, what will happen when this lone crusader is no longer around?
