The Cristino de Vera foundation-CajaCanarias Cultural Space and the Embassy of Brazil in Madrid kick off their Brazilian film season on Tuesday 10th at 19:30, starting with a screening of "Nise, The Heart of Madness" (2016 - “Nise, o coração da loucura”). Admission is free but capacity is limited.

Roberto Berliner’s film pays homage to famous Brazilian psychiatrist Nise da Silveira. After leaving prison following a sentence based on political reasons, she returns to work in a psychiatric hospital on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. She refuses to use electroshock and lobotomies in the treatment of patients with schizophrenia and begins putting on art workshops as occupational therapy that revolutionised the treatment of those people.
