SYNOPSIS

The Australian theatre group Back to Back consists mainly of actors with learning difficulties. For some time now, Mark, Rita and Sonia have been making up the hard core of this unusual ensemble. They conceive and write their own plays, with Rita generally supplying the basic ideas. She has a strong preference for mythical heroines, who become entangled in a web of violence and love. The three actors have different backgrounds and antecedents, but on stage a unique and creative collaboration emerges.

In OUT OF OUR MINDS, filmmaker David Carlin follows them in their preparations for a new piece: a large-scale, extravagant spectacle, to be staged in a large soccer stadium for an audience of 5,000 people. In addition to the leading characters, 150 volunteers are involved. With the première drawing near, the event threatens to become submerged in chaos for a short while and the Back to Back actors seem to be aiming too high with this venture.
