Vincent lives in two worlds. One world is his “reality” where he leads a regular life and the other is his “delirium,” where he is famous and extraordinary. In this delirious world, there are mystical creatures, danger and fighting where Vincent constantly battles against his greatest friends and enemies along with the numerous voices that live in his head. Vincent’s sister and director, Rozenn Potin, returns home from Québec to document her brother’s daily life and his struggle with mental illness. Through Vincent’s accounts of his delusions and paranoia, Potin tries to deconstruct and understand the mind of a person affected by schizophrenia – the world of her brother.
There will be a Q&A following the screening.
