Marianne's face defies the notion of age. She seems to bear the marks of many lives. Marianne uses her diagnoses and her peers’ experiences to shape a personal relationship with her psychological condition. She is constantly creating and recreating herself, sometimes playing and losing faith, but always getting back up. Several moments of her daily life are captured, in which she reveals her intimate cohabitation with the voices she hears. The portrait of a woman who fights to exist and to live with difference.
Interview with filmmaker Elina Chared
Through the subject of Marianne, the film's narrative structure reflects how personal stories are constructed, rejected and recreated, as she faces the daily struggles of a psychological disorder. The Voices from Inside is a powerful and sensitive film. A must see!
