Synopsis :
“Les chênes verts / The green oaks” Subtitle “jouer aux cartes / playing cards”

The common divider of a stay in a psychiatric hospital and a family is a card game.
This video shows us six women playing card in a garden. The speed of the video is slowed down in order to absorb the viewer into the movements of and the relation between these women.
A voice-off relates a story, that seems incomprehensible, makes you feel uneasy and wondering about its relation to the women.

(The text was written about a year after a 7 weeks stay in a psychiatric hospital. It relates how it feels to be inside this place. “there where there are only rules and no norms, there where I was happy, while …… It describes the other people and the relations of the first person with these people. The hospitalisation was the result of TMS difficulties related to excessive and misplaced computer usage)
