The artist’s mind is terra incognita for outsiders. What is the nature of inspiration? What motivates a person to create? Why do people with mental problems often have greater intellect and sensitivity than healthy people? Amelie Ravalec’s film, dedicated to the study of the connection between art and the secrets of the human psyche, tries to answer these questions. The Old Masters, the Surrealists, the unrecognized geniuses of Art Brut and outsider art, Bosch, Van Gogh, Goya, Dali, Munch, Blake and the patients of psychiatric clinics who actively draw their wildest fantasies: what do they have in common, and where is the narrow line that divides genius from insanity?
