Unseen

'Just because you can't see it, doesn't mean it's not there.' Imagine if the insensitivities towards those with mental illness were given towards those with physical illness. "Unseen" emerges as a poignant exploration of societal attitudes toward mental health. The film confronts the lack of empathy often directed toward individuals grappling with mental health challenges by using physical afflictions into metaphors for mental struggles, shedding light on the disparity in understanding and support.
