Suddenly my thoughts halt

A cup of coffee, a cigarette. A coin, another cup of coffee. Patients wander the corridors of Conde Ferreira Hospital, in Porto. They walk alone. They wait. Another cigarrette. Therapies that appeal to the senses. Routines that pull them back to reality. It’s life repeating itself at psychiatric hospital spaces’. Lucidity and madness live together. From the outside world comes an actor in search of his character for a theatre play, diving into the inner world of schizophrenia. Patients are part of the creation of the character. The theatre character is born and Cinema documents it by the camera of director Jorge Pelicano.
