About this submission
As we are in the current unprecedented times, I thought it was very important to explore the loneliness and isolation that has come with lockdown. I chose to tell a story about spiralling mental health in which a woman is stuck with a rat in her walls, but the rat ends up physically embodying her growing depression. I think the beauty of film is how it can capture a specific state of someone’s life, whilst also being timeless and universal. I had a very simple premise to really delve into the pain of this one short moment of our lives.
