My radio show is run by crazy people

Alfredo Olivera

Argentina, France / Buenos Aires
Innovation : Marketed / Broadcasted
There aren’t many people interested in the lives of patients at psychiatric hospitals, but the patients at Borda Hospital in Buenos Aires have become internationally famous thanks to a unique radio show. Interns manage and host a program that features psychiatric patients as guests.

When we got to Borda Hospital, we were early and no one was there to greet us. While we waited at the door of the radio station, people stopped and chatted with us. Were they ‘normal’ or were they mental ill? We couldn’t always tell, and the line between the two worlds is frequently difficult to make out.

Interact, support, talk !
