Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Yes this is a film about a man drinking coffee that may just be a little too hot but the genisis of the film comes from personal experience. Emotions include Fear Anger and Pain (physical and emotional)
After struggling for many years with conflict based PTSD I finally gave up. Like many people I have had my ups and downs, trials and tribulations and been round the block and few times. For a long time I let my mental health issues get the better of me. Of course when things started going wrong I sought out help in all the traditional ways but unfortunatetly i couldn't find a solution that resonated with me. So I came to the conclusion that living with these conditions was my lot in life.
I basically gave up on my own wellness and continued doing what I was doing which was going nowhere fast. While on that road I began making short narrative films and entering festivals. To my surprise after some time had passed I began to realize that the films I had been making were actually interwoven with my own experience and that I was no longer experiencing such volatile symptons of my conflict based PSTD.
