A poignant blend of history, philosophy, poetry and politics creatively woven into a profoundly meditative portrait of Porirua Hospital and the treatment of the melancholic and the mentally ill, from the asylum era to the present.

"Asylum Pieces is an excavation of our past and present mental health system, but it is also an astonishingly accomplished artistic piece, and a moving love letter to a co-creator. This is a unique and unforgettable film." -Graeme Tuckett
