Director Statement

The short film Slice of Life is a look into the mind of one example of someone dealing with chronic depression and self harm. What does this really look like? Why do people hurt themselves? For some, it feels as though there is another part of our minds taking over. In this film, I chose to depict this as the physical entity of Death lurking over Ann's shoulder, tempting her at every turn whether she wants to or not. Gina in this film represents what we wish we could have told our past selves to help them get through this, the healing of the inner child.
