On The Adamant

Directed by Nicolas Philibert

Release: 2023
Runtime: 109
Country: France, Japan
Language: French w/ English subtitles
Director: Nicolas Philibert

The Adamant is a one-of-a-kind place: a floating center on the Seine River in the heart of Paris that offers day programs for adults with mental health disorders. Its attendees come from across the city and are offered care that grounds them in time and space, helping them achieve recovery and stability. Through a blend of therapy, education, and culture rooted in music and the arts, the Adamant offers an eye-opening alternative to the dehumanizing way in which even the most enlightened societies treat mental health. The community that exists on the boat is thoughtfully constructed and maintained by the staff and the people receiving care alike. Their meetings and conversations reveal the camaraderie and collective humanity of a group of people whose similarities far outweigh their differences. Winner of the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival, this affecting, enlightening documentary from nonfiction master Nicolas Philibert (To Be and to Have, In the Land of the Deaf) invites viewers to come aboard the Adamant and witness the transformational power of art and community.
