Directed by Katie Mitchell adapted from the novel by the American author Charlotte Perkins Gilman. A new mother travels from Berlin to the countryside with her baby, her husband and her nanny. Installed in the attic room, with its natural daylight and fresh air, the woman sets about recovering her strength. Soon, the woman begins to see images in the wallpaper and convinces herself that there is a figure trapped in the pattern: a figure she must set about freeing. What begins as an attempt to give her peace and calm soon becomes a nightmare of delusion and unrest. British director Katie Mitchell reinterprets Gilman’s story as a study of post-natal depression, creating a live film work which speaks to our times.
