Nathan Edwards – He is presenting his short film project Melancholoy.
Synopsis: The film focuses on day night in the life of Sara, a typical twenty-something going through a severe depressive episode while trying reach out for any kind of catalyst to pull herself free, searching for help through friends, faith, and medication. Through Sara’s eyes we see the despair, hopelessness, and fear that can cripple the life of an individual fighting a major depressive disorder. Sara’s boyfriend, Graham, provides the perspective of the outsider. He struggles to find some way to help the woman he loves but can’t find a way to break Sara out of her cycle of lethargy and depression. The relationship between Sara and Graham demonstrates a common example of the misunderstanding and disconnect between any couple in which one person is suffering from depression. Melancholy explores this disconnect and provides an emotional insight into the struggles of both Sara and Graham. Click here to support it on Kickstarter.
