Soundly Secured.

"Soundly Secured." is an interpretive short film about mental health and the reality of anxiety, depression, and suicidal thoughts that have occurred in my life. More importantly, I created this to help someone else out there who is feeling alone in the harsh reality of mental disorders. I am with you and I support you.

Director Statement

Hi there,
My name is Alex and this is the first short film I am submitting to a formal film festival. I would just like to say thank you for taking the time to watch my work. I put my heart and soul into this project. I believe young people like me are not using their voices to break the stigma against mental health, and "Soundly Secured." is my effort to do so. Thank you so much!
