A film that takes us from the side of mental illness with great tact, respect, empathy for people who are filmed. A film challenging our prejudices, showing us how the line between the mentally ill people and the supposedly „normal“ is fragile. A film about what connects us to one another. A film that shows how the real and the imaginary are closely entwined.
Nicolas Philibert, Director „Être et Avoir“
On Ireland’s rugged West Coast, a reggae band from London make their way to play in an arts festival. Long-term mental health sufferers, they share their tales of psychosis, the wrestling between reality and an imaginary world which can seem all too real. We might all have our day on the moon, but sooner or later we will all come crashing down to earth.
