Démoni Kezek, Hungary, 2010, 53 min, Beta SP, Health, Music
The film is about focal dystonia - a disease that primarily strikes professional musicians. This disease ruins the lives of tens of thousands of musicians, in part because the patients are afraid to talk about it, and because doctors often misdiagnose it. The film originated in a screenplay by classical guitarist Sándor Mester (known as MS3), who suffered from this disease for more than a decade. Depression, alcoholism, suicide - this is the path often followed by musicians with focal dystonia... The film interviews musicians from eight different countries who either suffer from dystonia or have recovered.
