Watch ‘Possessed’, a documentary exploring people’s relationships to possessions and collecting, directed by Martin Hampton:

‘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?
