Synopsis Depression has been part of my life, but I handled it well and symptoms were within control, until recently, the Autumn of 2019. I retreated to the safespace I erected within my mind, a construct where I am isolated from my fears and anxiety and emotions. But my past self, a version of me that still recognizes happiness, haunts me.

For an outsider filmmaker who is also marginalized in society, I would like to thank NAE for giving me an experience of a life time to attend a film festival where my art can be seen and my voice can be heard without prejudice and bias.It would otherwise be immensely difficult to achieve the same in local HK. As a person with existing mental health issues, I had trouble breaking into the film industry as it is both physically and mentally demanding. And a lot of times, freelance involves a lot of startup capital like equipment. Which is both a curse and blessing because I am able to think outside the box, not restricted by conventions, however, results in limited connections with the filmmaker community which greatly diminishes the visibility of my work. And when my works are not known locally, it's hard to develop a career and forever condemned to being a hobby which will only be deemed not good enough for further nourishing or development.
