  • THINGS USED TO BE HIDDEN

    Tara Wood 4 mins (UK, 2015)

    They say that neurotic behavior is typically within socially acceptable limits, so how do you solve the puzzles in your head while being ''normal''? This film, using a rather abstract and nonlinear narrative form, explores borders, while also taking shape and characteristics of a scattered mind that is experiencing perhaps its first symptoms of the dissociative identity disorder.
