In France, a psychiatric hospital has 12 days to bring a patient placed in its care to a hearing, where it’s decided if they must remain institutionalized or may be released. In making 12 Days, celebrated photographer and documentarian Raymond Depardon was given unprecedented access to these hearings where justice and psychiatry meet, and where the futures of more than 90,000 French citizens are decided every year. (87 mins., DCP)

Screened in conjunction with the Medical Humanities: From Campus to Communities conference. Visit the conference website for more information.
