daze + nights

A film by Anna McKenzie

This was the first project I made in my foundation year of university, and it still holds a place in my heart. I interviewed my best friend about depression and anxiety, issues that we've both experienced and tried to illustrate what she said with visuals. I also wanted to challenge the representation of young teenage girls that we see in today's film and media, who are often portrayed as catty, bitchy, mad about boys or simply not relevant to a greater narrative. I wanted to show a side of adolescence that isn't shown or talked about enough.
