Forget shame and fear, welcome to The Loony Bin! The Loony Bin! is a documentary based on the director’s diary-notes. The film uses authentic images and text-messages, as well as staged footage where the director reenacts her summer in a psychiatric ward with the help of her brother, psychiatric aides and actors. Far from how these hospitals are usually depicted, The Loony Bin! uses true notes, true conversations, dark humor and warmth to tell stories about the diagnoses that frightens everyone on the outside.
