‘Split’ is an experimental film about the visual expression of what mental health looks and feels like. Depression and anxiety can be both polar opposite feelings, but also can inflict similar moods and states of mind.
Throughout the filming process, I explored my own experiences of anxiety and depression as well as experiences from friends and people online. I attempted to highlight the feeling visually in order to evoke what a mental health problem physically looks like. Typically, people cannot express mental health issues, as it is something internal and that can’t be explained in words. Mental health is such a sensitive and personal feeling, subject to different ways of experiencing and dealing with it.
