A documentary on Peter Dunning, the proprietor of Mile Hill Farm in Vermont who has isolated himself away from his family and often suggests to the filmmakers to make his own suicide a narrative device.
A miracle happened in Brazil on the 1950's. Renowned modern art museums opened their doors to artists nobody ever heard of. Many critics pointed out that theses exhibitions revealed painters that should be ranked amongst the best brazillian artists of the century. It was written that this explosion of art and beauty was a sign that something comparable to the renaissance was happening in Riio de Janeiro. Behind this miracle there was no art academy, patron or dealer, only a psychiatrist, ridiculed by her colleagues, and a painting studio at a mental hospital, in the outskirts of town. The artists were schizophrenic, poor, hospitalized for several decades, abandoned by their families and hopeless according to their doctors. This film tells the story of this "Miracle" and the life of this rebellious, frail and engaging psychiatrist: Dra. Nise da Silveira.Written by
A story that is very important, not only for Brazil, but vital in the context of the health process, something moving and revolutionary, because the madness treated from a human point of view and as an instrument art, something very sensitive, something that values the ego of the person who has lost and wants to reintegrate life. A medical woman who believed in the power of love, to transform people who so badly need a way out.
The filmmaker is Paulo Pauloer, a great documentary filmmaker, made a documentary of Herbet Vianna (Herbet from Around 2009) and did this in detail. As protagonist we have one of the greatest Brazilian artists, Glória Pires, who made among other films, Se Eu Fosse Você (2006 and part II in 2009) and O Guarani in 1996.
