‘Possessed’ screening at the BFI

Martin Hampton‘s film Possessed will be showing at the BFI as part of the London Independent Film Festival (LIFF) at 2pm on Monday 14th April.

Possessed enters the complicated worlds of four hoarders; people whose lives are dominated by their relationship to possessions. The film questions whether hoarding is a symptom of mental illness or a revolt against the material recklessness of consumerism. When does collecting become hoarding and why do possessions exert such an influence on our lives?

The film recently won the Silver Egg (second prize) at Emir Kusturica’s Küstendorf Film Festival in Serbia.
