Averroès” and “Rosa Parks” are two psych­ia­tric units at the Esquirol Hospital in Paris. They belong to the same net­work as the “Adamant”, the floa­ting day cli­nic on the river Seine at the heart of Nicolas Philibert’s film Sur l’Adamant, win­ner of the Golden Bear at the 2023 Berlinale. In Averroès & Rosa Parks, Philibert con­ti­nues his explo­ra­ti­on of this topic. From indi­vi­du­al inter­views to mee­tings bet­ween pati­ents and carers, the film­ma­ker focu­ses on show­ing a form of psych­ia­try that con­ti­nu­al­ly stri­ves to make room for and reha­bi­li­ta­te the pati­ents’ words. Little by litt­le, each one eases open the door to their world. But within an incre­asing­ly worn-out health sys­tem, how can the for­sa­ken be given a place in socie­ty among the rest?
