Holland Doc 24



Holland Doc 24

On September 5th Holland Doc and Breaking Ground presented three short documentaries from British film students. Each of the characters struggle with the different dimensions in their head.

Bipolar (Royal College of Art, Londen) from Ed Barrett gives insight into the mental disorder schizophrenia.

Johanna Wagner made the film Peter in Radioland (Scottish Documentary Institute) about her father, the 63-year old Peter. He spends most of his time alone in his bedroom, while he thinks about the past. There's nothing much left for him in a world full of modern technology. He prefers to live in an analog world with his record player, projector and radio. With a mix of stop frame animation, super 8 equipment and observation video images the film tries to capture the fear of change.

Listening to the Silences (London Film School) from Pedro Flores is about Roy Vincent, who is hearing voices for thirty years. Voices that talk to him and take control of his body and mind. Like Roy other historic figures also heard voices: Jesus, Joan of Arc, Beethoven, Charles Darwin and Winston Churchill. What is it like to live with someone else in your head? What are these voices: angels, demons or hallucinations?
