Sur l'Adamant by Nicolas Philibert will be the opening film of the 19th edition of Biografilm (Bologna June 9 - 19).
The film, winner of the Golden Bear in Berlin, will be screened on the festival's opening night, June 9 in the presence of Nicolas Philibert, to whom Biografilm will dedicate a tribute and who will be presented with the Celebration of Lives Award.
The film recounts, with the politeness and respect typical of Philibert's style, the work of a psychiatric garrison housed in a boat moored on the Seine, and overturns that image of the "invisibility" of people with mental disorders often portrayed in a dehumanizing manner. Sur l'Adamant will be released in Italian theaters this fall with I Wonder Pictures.
