The aim of my film was to explore boundaries between the tangible and the solid against sublime and subjective world of thoughts and emotions; understanding the contrast and making an attempt to unify them in one visual representation.
The question is, how can you interpret or manifest depression as something solid? How can you visualize feelings and emotions? Even though they have a name every person experiences the same fear, the same moment of happiness in their own personal way. All these things that are not easy to explain I decided to convert them into an experimental film about introspection and depression.
After finalizing the project and seen the final result I challenge people to rethink about preconceptions about woman, depression and free will. To be in touch with your feelings, represents a preconceived notion about female mind and by that we mean weakness? Does the silence in a woman always have to represent a sense of oppression? Can we judge by the identity, sex of a character, without a preconception of gender? Can cinema approach the abstract world of feelings and push experimental film further with new techniques, technology and a solid approach to represent a emotions? And finally, Can we approach as society, to value the abstract world, and make it as real as the physical world?
