Days of Madness is participatory-observational documentary that leads to the hidden and most obscure world of psychic different that society lightly rejects and transforms them into patients. Mladen and Maja in the mature phase of their life found themselves trapped between demons of the past and the loads of medicines their GP’s persistently offer instead of talking. As in many other stories, the society have reliably responded to the moral dullness of their dysfunctional family history by leaving them to the health system that made them addicts. Days of Madness, with subtle observation follow their loneliness caught in a vicious circle of rejection and guilt, but also attempts to find their corner in the society that has rejected them. On their way they will have to deal with the ghosts of the past as well as with the rulers of the present who label demonic everything they do not understand. Mladen and Maja told their final NO to their doctors and took care of themselves, finally ready to share their thorny odyssey with others. Through the filigree-caught moments of the two almost lost and forgotten lives, the question arises - who is actually crazy here?


This film is presented in cooperation with KineDok.
