In one of the world’s largest cities, New York City, we run into Lucy Winer. The feeling that the world is smaller than it sometimes seems is fantastic. And to meet Lucy again is fantastic, last time we met was at Mad in America Film Festival when her documentary Kings Park: Stories from an American Mental Institution was shown. A film about Lucy’s history, about being at a psychiatric ward under duress. And it’s about the mental hospital’s history, the people who worked there and it is about those who were patients. A film that hurts, that challenges us and makes us wonder. How did this happen? Who were all the people? What can these buildings tell us today? Has anything changed? Now we have the pleasure to announce that Lucy Winer will come to Gothenburg and our Film Festival to show Kings Park.
