Mettes voice - Trailer / Preview
Mettes is 43 years old. A trained nurse. Diagnosis: Paranoid Schizophrenia. After 15 years as a psychiatric patient, vast amounts of medicine and 150 electro-shock, she is finally getting along. This film tracks Mette’s life during four years. A warm and thought provoking film about hope and mastering your own life. Denmark ranks as the no. 2 country in the world consuming psychiatric drugs. “Mettes Voice” has become a strong testament against traditional one-sided focus on medicalization of mental distress
