this is how it feels to me

A film by Jenny Amdi Sørensen, produced by Bacon.

As Mental Health Awareness Month comes to a close, we are proud to present a brave film from one of our young filmmakers, Jenny Amdi Sørensen. Jenny captures the experience of OCD and anxiety, depicting its vicious cycles and fractured thinking. 

In her own words: “I meant for the film to be about OCD as I felt a need to illustrate how it feels. Gradually I realized the film was about fear and emotional distress in more ways than one. Most of us haven’t learned to handle ‘negative’ feelings – afraid that if we let the feeling in, it will stay. In actuality, we create a vicious spiral by pushing feelings away.”

Thank you to everyone who helped create this film.
