'POSSESSED' enters the complicated worlds of four hoarders; people whose lives are dominated by their relationship to possessions.

The film questions whether hoarding is a symptom of mental illness or a revolt against the material recklessness of consumerism. When does collecting become hoarding and why do

possessions exert such an influence on our lives?

The film was made by Martin Hampton, an independent

documentary filmmaker, with the help of the Goldsmiths

Center for Visual Anthropology, London, UK.
