Duration 111 ‘

A film with a different approach  to mental illness and an emphasis on the personality and abilities of the individual.

The film is set in Italy in the early 1980s. Nello (Claudio Bisio) is the recently hired director of a newly developed work cooperative of former mental patients. After the closure of state psychiatric hospitals and asylums in Italy under the Basaglia Law many former patients were left with few resources and little hope of reintegrating into society. With the intention of actually improving the lives of his pupils, rather than just sedating them, Nello encourages them to expand their individual abilities. Sometimes, however, there is a price to pushing boundaries too quickly. “We can do that” maintains a sometimes troubled, but ultimately faith in human nature and human potential.

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And six years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
