Director Statement

I wanted to tell a story about mental health and feeling trapped in your own head. Drawing on my experiences of isolation and loneliness in quarantine, I came up with the idea for 'In My Head'. This film is about the daily struggles of mental health and finding the strength to persevere in spite of it.
