The ASYLUM is a powerful metaphor for the human condition directed by Saskia Vredeveld in association with artist/photographer Roger Ballen. The film narrative shows a strange and surrealistic environment in which irreconcilable contradictions between the lust for power and the desire to love are penetratingly played out between man and animal, man and woman then a man, a woman and a child. We find a couple looking for refuge in a confined space full of drawings and animals. The Asylum, in a literal meaning of the word describes a shelter where one survives in the most basic conditions. The man wants power and woman wants to love but they have lost their ability to communicate with each other.
