Hyperacusis

Two short films that explore mental health and trauma, access to healthcare, transcultural psychiatry, and the intergenerational impacts of racism, colonialism and other socioeconomic inequalities.

It includes a dance collaboration with French artist Jule Lanoix, interviews with psychiatrist/film-maker Khaldoon Ahmed, musician and writer Blue Maignien, and artist, DJ, teacher and musician Chooc Ly Tan. Experiments took place at UrsuLAB, a biohacking lab based at Antre Peaux in Bourges, France, founded by Kina Madno (of Quimera Rosa collective).

These two films exist both as an installation work, or they can be screened as single-channel films.
