La asamblea
The Assembly

Galel Maidana

Argentina, Documentary, 2008
70 min, HD, Black & White
Spanish with English subtitles


This film proposes a voyage of observation through the heart of the Frente de Artistas del Borda. Every conflict and implicit event in the creative process takes place here, only that, in this case, most of the individuals involved live behind the walls of J.T. Borda’s Neuropsychiatric Hospital. They are deprived of their basic human rights and live under the archaic conceptions of mental health. La asamblea won the 2009 Best Documentary award at the Toulouse Film Festival.
