(πάτα εδώ για ελληνικά)

A few words about the «course» of the film
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

The film was firstly screened on June 2016 in the central square of our town, 200 meters from the Psychiatric Hospital “Dromokaiteio”. Since then, it has been screened at events in several self-organised spaces (in Athens and Patra), after communication of the hosting groups with our assembly. During this time, we were given the opportunity to meet with other self-organised groups, to find common grounds with survivors of psychiatry, to discuss and to analyse the subjects addressed in the film, the subjects not addressed in the film, the subjects that regard all of us. For those reasons we made the choice not make the film public for some time, in order to give ourselves some valuable time. The film is now freely accessible online, which does not mean that this “previous” cycle of meetings and discussions has closed. We want the film to continue to be an “excuse” for common grounds and times, but at the same time we want this to also happen for everyone who chooses to create them without us.

More on the context in which the film was created, about the material used in it and much more, see (or download) the following booklet that accompanies the film:

A few more words…
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

The fact that the film is freely accessible, does not mean that we agree to the public use of it by everyone or/and in all ways. So, it cannot be used by psychiatric guilds, by “experts” and funs of the ideology and the practices of dominant psychiatry. It cannot be used by the profitable “humanitarianism” of NGOs, of festivals and conferences that are organised or sponsored by ministries, pharmaceutical companies and institutions. It cannot be used by statutes, political parties, “private initiatives”. It cannot be used by any sector, body, group, individual who exploits or/and manipulates or/and devalues the survivors of psychiatry. It cannot be used by groups with racist context, by fascists and by any “fed up civilians” who turn against the unprivileged. It cannot be used by the media because it detests mediators. Lastly, it cannot be used by any space in which you need to pay an entrance fee to enter.
