Nicolas Philibert returns with a warm and sympathetic documentary On the Adamant, which proved a worthy winner of the Berlin Film Festival’s Golden Bear earlier this year.

The Adamant, a unique day-care centre located on the Seine in the heart of Paris, welcomes adults who experience mental health issues, offering the kind of care that grounds them in time and space, helping them to keep up spirits. Philibert offers no diagnoses nor labels. He simply opens a window, to give us an empathetic, non-clinical view on the often stigmatised individuals portrayed, reducing the gap between ‘us’ and ‘them’.

"Compassionate, intelligent and shrewdly observed... " - The Guardian
