12 Tage

A film by Ray­mond Depar­don.  In french with ger­man subtitles.

Every year in Fran­ce, 92,000 peop­le are pla­ced under psych­iatric care without their con­sent. By law, the hos­pi­tal has 12 days to bring each pati­ent befo­re a judge. Based on medi­cal records and a doctor’s recom­men­da­ti­ons, a cru­cial decisi­on has to be made – will the pati­ent stay or lea­ve? Gran­ted access to the­se hea­rings for the first time, Ray­mond Depar­don cap­tures the­se extra­or­di­na­ry encoun­ters bet­ween jus­ti­ce and psych­ia­try. “We filmed 72 hea­rings and our enga­ge­ment was streng­t­he­ned by con­ta­ct with trou­bled pati­ents who mana­ged to bear wit­ness with gre­at digni­ty and sen­si­ti­vi­ty. Abo­ve all the­se are peop­le who are suf­fe­ring; their words are valu­able, nor merely dis­tur­bed or insa­ne, but clear and stron­gand con­cer­ned with their future lives. 12 DAYS pres­ents ten of the­se pati­ents.” (Ray­mond Depardon)
