Director Rika Tarigan met 11 people from different backgrounds at online plattforms. Now she is telling their stories about mental health and own demons in an animated documentary.


   
“My Demon, Your Demon” is my Bachelorproject in the Faculty of Media Art & Design at the Bauhaus-University Weimar.

The film based on the interview I did with 11 individuals, I found online during winter in 2017. On the interview sessions, we talked about the demon, or whatever it is that makes our life difficult, just like depression, anxiety and addiction.


Moved by the on-going number of suicide rates due to depression and addiction, I wanted to create an artwork that questions the stigmas surrounding people with mental health illness to trigger more conversation towards a better support system for those whose live has been affected by this issue either directly or indirectly.
