"Sometimes anxiety is already impossible to separate. It has fused with the fears of others”, she says. She is our protagonist, she has no name, no clear age or education. She can be you, me or her. She is all the women I know.
Loud heart palpitations, a strange, uneven rhythm of the breath. At times heavy, slowed down and shallow, at other times fast, wheezing. An accelerated pulse. A clatter. Rustling. Anxiety has its own melody. HIDDEN is a portrait of women’s anxiety. An essay inspired by private stories and intimate feelings. Pondering the origins of anxiety, the inheritance of trauma and epigenetics. It is also a project that explores the documentary format.
