What is the Difference?

“What is the Difference?” is a brilliant visual design of two different organizational systems of the mind: Psychology and Parapsychology.
Filmmakers Mandev and Joti Suprem use the imagery of blocks to represent problems of the mind. The film highlights how Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung’s well-established clinical method for treating the mind through endless dialogue and psychoanalyses is outdated, and through parapsychology, one can simply remove any mental subconscious block or problem and never think about it again.
Featuring a commissioned song by the GRAMMY® Award-Winning band White Sun to invoke a healing energy, this film combines transformative sound with stunning imagery to demonstrate antiquated modes of thinking giving way to new systems; self opening to inner self and a new form of relating thereof.
“What is the Difference?” concisely explains the immense scope of the world’s most talked about phenomena: the mind.
