EN - Strokes of Madness outlines an image of four people who try to survive every day with a psychotic sensitivity - a life which seems almost impossible to imagine. Now, with sincere openness, they allow us insight into their everyday lives and personal suffering. It is a film about the boundary between creativity and psychological vulnerability. Each person creates their own piece of art with the help of a renowned Belgian artist. The pace, imagery and narrative technique moves to the rhythm of a psychosis. The unconventional theme and the engagement of the artists makes this film unique. Sometimes it’s pure madness, but sometimes it comes with a stroke of genius.
