Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
Director Janusz Kijowski's Voices is an introspective journey into the nature of the mind as seen from the perspectives of a spiritual approach in opposition to a scientific approach. When a woman who teaches organic chemistry in high school begins to hear voices and receive "impulses" from space, she is examined by a psychiatric team that pronounces her normal -- they can find no personality disorders. A scientist is not quite convinced of their findings and decides to run some bioelectric tests on her. He comes away thinking that the psychologists were right -- she is normal, but there may, indeed, be external voices that she is perceiving. As the mystery of the voices begins to heat up, the scientists and others become more and more involved in solving the issue, and delving into the nature of communication and the mind.
