Possessed by Martin Hampton

4 hoarders allow a camera into their homes. And what he recorded is simply shocking.

Director Martin Hampton takes us into the complicated worlds of four hoarders — people whose lives are dominated by their relationship to possessions.

It is very natural for humans to give objects special importance. But when this tendency gets out of hand complications can begin. Hoarding behavior should be seen on a spectrum, ranging from mild to severe.

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?
