On the Adamant

From Fri 03 to Wed 22 Nov
Festivals & Series

The Adamant is a unique day-care facility: a floating structure in the heart of Paris, it welcomes adults suffering from mental disorders, offering them care that grounds them in time and space, and helps them recover or keep their spirits up. Directed by veteran documentary director Nicolas Philibert (Être et avoir) and awarded the Golden Bear at this year’s Berlin Film Festival, the film invites us to board The Adamant and meet the patients and caregivers who invent its day-to-day life.


All screenings are preceded by an exclusive recorded introduction by director Nicolas Philibert
