Born of institutional psychiatry, Valver, created in the mid-1970s, is a psychiatric hospital near Marseille where “a spirit of openness and free movement” reigns. The observation of daily life and a large place given to the patients are the material of the film, where interviews with caregivers or non-medical staff of the institution (such as the librarian/documentalist), moments of interaction between patients and caregivers, rites of daily life (meals, taking medication) coexist.

 

Preceded by the short film La peau de l’ours (13′).
