Winner of the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival, this affecting, enlightening documentary from nonfiction master Nicolas Philibert (TO BE AND TO HAVE) invites viewers to come aboard the Adamant: a floating refuge on the Seine River in the heart of Paris that offers day programs for adults with mental illnesses. Through a blend of therapy, education, and culture rooted in music and the arts, the Adamant offers a hopeful vision of what a humanistic approach to mental health care could look like, revealing through the meetings and conversations of the staff and people receiving care the camaraderie and collective humanity of a group of people whose similarities far outweigh their differences. Film Center exclusive.
