We the Insane

Thomas Kragh, Laus Bengtsen, Denmark, 1980

33 min.DK/Documentary

At the world's first festival for the insane, psychiatric patients, former patients, and progressive therapists tell why they are annoyed with the existing hospital system and about the alternatives they themselves have met. The motto of the festival is: We want to act, not to be acted upon. And the film shows that these people both can and will act.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste. Se listen over prioriterede festivaler.
