Madness Made Me - International Premiere

Mini Docs Competition

Niki Castle - New Zealand, 3 mins.



Down the end of the long polished corridor, Mary O'Hagan comes face to face with the condemning words written about her in her psychiatric files. 

Madness Made Me is a visual poem that grapples with two very different accounts of one person’s madness. In doing so it addresses the power of language, asking: is there value in the experience of madness?

The director:

Nikki Castle graduated from the University of Auckland with a Masters in Screen Production, and has a long-standing career as an editor of documentary in New Zealand and Canada. She has edited numerous award-winning television series’, including The Green Chain (Best Documentary at the NZ Film & TV Awards).
