Mitch: The Diary of the Schizophrenic Patient (2014)
1h 10min · Documentary · 1 January 2014
Mitch is an artist, Mitch is schizophrenic. That's what he claims, facing the camera. This is his self-portrait, showing a man of 40 who uses the camera and film as a form of therapy. Mitch takes us with him on a meteoric journey through his environment, the psychiatric hospital where he lives. He films and asks questions about sex and beauty, and he rants but also sings, shouts about politics, rebels, scrutinizes, worries, and laughs too. He films with "gloves off" and without any sense of measure. But that's not all. It is also a journey through the margins of a country caught up in the traumatic aftermath of recent history.
