Synopsis

We the unquiet is a collective cinema experience that takes place in a therapeutic reception centre in Reims (in the East of France). The film offers an indirect self-portrait of the Artaud center in which patients and staff play along in order to give a more human picture of madness. With the advent of the DSM-5 (classification of mental disorders) and a tendency of psychiatry to think of the illness in terms of symptoms rather than focusing on the human point of view, the Artaud centre poses as an alternative.
