‘Satisfied in Chaos’ is a dark but humorous self-portrait of Sidney. He prefers to live in his own chaotic world, where he devotes himself to the things he love to do most: making music, perform, draw and make videos. Unfortunately a life in utter chaos receives little approval from the outside world.
‘Satisfied in chaos’ is part of the participatory film project ‘Moving Identity’ by Ilke De Vries. In this project she collaborated with five persons with a psychological vulnerability. Sidney was one of them. In the course of two years Ilke De Vries accompanied Sidney in filming his own surroundings. In interviews he talked about his life course, his struggles and his way of thinking. In monthly group meetings they showed each other’s materials, discussed content, techniques and next steps. This process was a collaboration from beginning to end and only through this participatory process Ilke De Vries was able to make such a personal portrait of Sidney and the struggles he faces every day.
