I would like to dedicate my Bachelor film to the topic of “self-harm”. Many friends of mine have been through times when self-harm seams like the only solution. I realized that most people react with misunderstanding and are confused about how one could harm themselves. As a consequence, many people who self-harm are feeling ashamed for their scars and hiding them. In my animated shortfilm an anonymous Person shares her experience with her self-harm and the scars, and how her family and her friends handle the whole situation.
I hope that the insight into her point of view will create more understanding. But also invites people to talk about the topic, that is so often avoided, without being judged.
