A personal work
about an individuals struggle with depression
and the effect it has on her life.
Anhedonia shoots directly to the point with poetry and images
that evoke controversy in one mind set and passion in another.
Depression and suicide are met head on with Cuthand's honesty.
Anhedonia shocks people into opening their eyes to the source
of the illness in the Aboriginal community.
Statistics, split images, words and flesh meld together
making this short film long on compassion, screaming out for help
and recognition of the mentally ill's dream of someday having a normal life.
