World premiere of Jim Marbrook's new documentary.

"It's a stunning film: movng, funny and - even though I hate this word - important. Go and see it." - Graeme Tuckett, Dominion Post

The bad old, very bad old days of mental health care in New Zealand are recalled with dismay, disbelief and a touch of gallows humour by five survivors in Jim Marbrook’s gently affirmative documentary. All were institutionalised in places that luckier New Zealanders remember just driving past with a contraction of fear and curiosity, scary places that burrowed into national consciousness and individual insecurity for generations.

Marbrook has the grace never to feed on the persecution of his subjects. He honours their endurance and enables their stories to emerge from the shadows and leave their indelible blemishes on our social history.
