This short film was shot at a Mental Hospital deep in the Carpathian Mountains of Ukraine. In Soviet times political dissidents were imprisoned here along with the insane. While still on the grim side (but what mental hospital isn't), the institution has come a long way in the last years, largely through the efforts of S.A.R.A.
This and the Roma film were shot entirely by me along with still photos which can be viewed on my website www.andrewtonnphoto.com. For all you photo geeks, the video was shot with a Panasonic DVC60 and the black and white still photos taken with a Leica M6ttl on Kodak 400CN. The color stills were taken with a Leica Digilux 1.
