Free admission, all welcome
The Directors is a collaboration between artist Marcus Coates and five individuals in recovery from different lived experiences of psychosis. Positioned behind the camera, each of them directs Coates in a filmed restaging of a particular episode in their own life.

Following extensive research and discussion, the five short films challenge cultural stigma through an attempt to understand different realities. Each director chose a location of personal significance where Coates was filmed embodying and performing their experiences.

Marcus Coates will visit Cornwall to give talks at CAST on 8 February and at the School of Film and Television at Falmouth University on 9 February.

Please note: the films contain scenes some viewers may find distressing

The Directors is part of The Artangel Collection, an initiative to bring outstanding film and video works, commissioned and produced by Artangel, to galleries and museums across the UK and internationally.
