About this submission
I made a short film about my experiences with a depersonalization disorder. Often, I feel detached from my sense of self—my world feels unreal, dream-like, in a haze. I sometimes feel like I am watching myself, from out of my own body. For years it was difficult to understand what was happening to me. I was afraid of never being able to experience my own life again, and take control of my own sensations. Within this film, I wanted to depict these detached sensations and visually immerse people in my own experiences with this condition.
