Why is society obsessed with the family
La Maladie Du Démon - The sickness of demons
Sometimes I have a hard time deciding when to review a film. I was already able to see “The Disease of Demons” at the DGPPN Congress 2018 in the presence of the filmmaker Lilith Kugler. The film has since received an award and was shown at an international symposium organized by Amnesty International. The official film start on the Internet is October 10th, i.e. the day of mental health. As a result, the documentary will be shown in many cities. Information on this at www.la-maladie-du-demon.com. Further special events (with discussions afterwards) are possible.
People who suffer from epilepsy or psychosis behave conspicuously, differently, threateningly. Are they possessed by witches or demons? The spirit of the Enlightenment has not arrived in all countries. Definitely not in Burkina Faso. Affected men and women are singled out, wander around or live in holes in the ground, some chained for years. You provide them with food and stay away because they could be contagious. A whole group of them is gathered in a “prayer center” under unspeakable conditions.
A few people in Burkina Faso have learned that it is a disease and that there are medicines. The film accompanies the seemingly hopeless efforts of the young nurse Timothée Tindano, who regularly goes to consultations over vast distances. He prescribes drugs that are difficult to get hold of. Tankpali Guitanga is a pastor and musician and fights for the rights of the outcasts through tireless discussions.
On the one hand, the film shows harrowing, barely comprehensible images of the stigmatized, and the sometimes lengthy journeys and conversations between the two helpers, their relatives and villagers. Treatment currently only seems conceivable with medication - you would of course wish for more as a spectator. After all, this extraordinary film shows a beginning.
