The Adamant is a unique day care center— it is a floating structure. Located on the Seine in the heart of Paris, it welcomes adults suffering from mental disorders, offering them care that grounds them in time and space, and helps them to recover or keep up their spirits. The team running it is one of those that try to resist the deterioration and dehumanization of psychiatry as best it can. Nicolas Philibert’s profound ON THE ADAMANT invites us to board and meet the patients and caregivers who create an environment of care driven by creativity and connection.
In French with English subtitles.
