The Voorman Problem
England
Doctor Williams is called in to examine the enigmatic Mr. Voorman, a prisoner with a peculiar problem — he believes he is a god. The doctor must decide on the sanity of Mr. Voorman. Is he a faker or a lunatic? Diagnose him insane and they can ship him off to the asylum and he’ll be out of their hands. But before making a decision, the doctor has several questions in relation to Voorman’s claim: why would a god choose to be straitjacketed in a prison and why do all the inmates believe his claim? The 2014 Academy Award nominated short was written and directed by Mark Gill. Principal cast: Martin Freeman (Sherlock! and The Hobbit) and Tom Hollander.
