    • Through a serie of portraits of patients, doctors and staff, MENTAL observes the complex world of an outpatient mental health clinic in Okayama (Japan). Depicting the daily lives and the "joyful sadness" of patients, Kazuhiro Soda questions the conventionnal boundary that separates the mentally ill and healthy people making us laugh every 5 minutes and cry even more.
