The Patron Saints provides an unsettling glimpse inside the disquieting and often disturbing life at a nursing home (trailer posted below). In this documentary, which will debut at the Toronto Film Festival, filmmakers Brian Cassidy and Melanie Shatzky use a storytelling approach to provide a cinematic narrative to this often-ignored subject.

The duo have been collaborating for the past several years; their work has shown at Sundance, Rotterdam, Toronto, and Edinburgh film festivals, winning awards at the Chicago International Film Festival, European Media Art Festival, and the Athens International Film Festival.
