A young man’s struggle with ADHD; his portal to drug use, experiences a metamorphic coming of age through the creative energy of rap music.
“Why do I judge myself, when the whole world is already doing it?” was the line in ‘#Speil’ (‘Mirror’), a song performed by norwegian rap artist Michael Kildal, which went straight to the heart of child psychiatrist Melanie Ekholdt. Fascinated by his artistic expression and energy, she invited him to a series of candid video-documented conversations between the two. The short documenatry film ‘In Love with Craziness’ is based on these conversations, incorporating Kildal’s music videos and personal photo albums.
