A short film about

surviving mental-ill health

A woman carries a lighted candle into a darkened tunnel where she finds herself surrounded by disembodied voices — each relating a lived experience of suffering mental ill-health. As these testimonies reach their collective point of crisis, the candle dies… Yet it is here, at the heart of darkness, where all hope seems lost, that ‘the light inside’ can be found. Insight, resilience and the help of others point the way back to reality, wellbeing and the light of day…

Before entering the screening room.

Wear headphones – the best way to experience the film’s binaural soundtrack.

3.

Be mindful that the film does touch on some difficult subjects.
