I'm Doing Well, How Are You?

Being told that everyone around us is “doing well” creates a misunderstanding in our minds that we are the only ones dealing with internal chaos. When we feel down among people who claim to be doing well, it exacerbates our distress. Contrarily, as we tell everyone that we are “doing well,” we begin to believe that our internal angst is wrong. So, we suppress feelings of sadness, anger, and anxiety. These feelings build up until they are expressed in the form of mistreatment of those around us. Through this film, I hope to allow people to unabashedly feel down and look at our interactions beyond the self-imposed masks.
