Wow.

A powerful and moving depiction of the young female psyche confused and fractured by mental illness. When I first stumbled upon this short film I re-watched it probably four times, I was so mesmerized and pummelled by the emotional impact what I had seen - it put into images what cannot be said in words, which I think is ultimately the most powerful tool of filmmaking. The mix of alluring and destructive is eerie, as the mix of imagery gets more and more chaotic and out of hand until reaching a breaking point. It felt like such an honest and ultimately heartbreaking depiction of the loneliness that is mental illness, often misunderstood and harshly judged.
