Three long-term psychiatric patients seek release from hospital.
This prize-winning television film follows three psychiatric patients as they seek their release from hospital. Filmed at Creedmore Psychiatric Centre in New York, the documentary reveals the dissatisfaction of patients, staff and relations with the attempts to combat the institutionisation of long-term hospital care. Whilst everyone agrees that these patients ought to be living in the outside world, the community proves a hostile and unsympathetic environment for the lonely men and women trying to cope for themselves. USA.
This film is of historical interest but the issues raised are still current.
