Some days we find ourselves on an obscure road of eternal darkness. You don‘t know who you are and where you want to go. Your own reality becomes distorted and the perception of ordinary things suddenly becomes abstract. You carry heavy ballast with you, a shadow that you cannot encounter.
CYCLES is a short film that deals with depression and anxiety on an abstract and artistic level. It is a topic that is still rarely addressed in our society, but is more important than ever, especially under today‘s circumstances. The withdrawal of freedom and closeness to people, pushes our own psyche into a corner.
