This short animated documentary uses virtual reality to address depression and the ways to cope with it.
Director and protagonist Ondřej Moravec guides us through diverse landscapes associating the story of his struggle with depression since puberty.
We share his feelings during the first depressive episodes at a family trip in his childhood, at university when striving for perfect results, at work in his everyday fights with the depressive “darkening”.
Through animation, combining a stylized form of Ondřej’s environment and abstract images of his emotions, the viewers will experience and understand what it is like to live with this illness, how to tackle it and what mechanisms are used by people with depression to feel better.
The second part of the Darkening project will be developed in collaboration with clinical psychologists as a therapeutic tool: the patients will enter VR to discover and recreate the landscapes of the mind to help them harmonize their minds.
