Arktisen Upeeta: Psychosia

A screening at Arktisen Upeeta XXI: THE WORLD IS BURNING film festival in Ilokivi.

"Viktoria is an extraordinarily self-disciplined researcher investigating the subject of suicide. She is invited to a psychiatric ward to help treat Jenny, a suicidal patient who has resisted all previous forms of treatment. Through intimate, nightly conversations, they slowly form a tight bond. For the first time in her life Viktoria gradually opens up to experience closeness with another person. But the closer the two women get, the more apparent it becomes that things are not what they seem." (Bufo)

The debut feature of the director Marie Grahtø, who openly draws from her own experience with psychosis on her works, will be opened with her supernatural short film TEENLAND (2015), set in a psych ward.

After the screening Marie Grahtø will take part in a Q&A -session via Skype.
