“So many people are affected by mental health crises and yet people don’t talk about it much. Before I noticed it in a person close to me, I, too, had an abstract image of it, much like it is represented in the media. No matter which mental illness, it’s usually the person affected that poses a threat, and the person behind it isn’t highlighted in any detail. So I thought I would make a film that does just that. The fears of the person affected and also those of their relatives, their feelings of guilt and hopelessness, but also the beautiful moments that you can sometimes experience with a person in crisis - especially when you’re not expecting it.”
