That Which is Possible

Michael Gitlin

Runtime84 minutes

Poster

A community of painters, sculptors, musicians, and writers make work at the Living Museum, an art space on the grounds of a large state-run psychiatric facility in Queens. Shot over the course of two years and structured across the arc of a day, the film observes with an intimate lens and unspools like a musical, both bracing and tender. It explores the liberation and healing that creativity can offer those drawn together by shared struggle. It points to a more humane and holistic approach to mental illness, and to the joy of transforming society itself.
