A powerful short created in support of UK mental health charity Mind by London-based filmmaking trio Crowns & Owls (previously featured here). The project features the group’s long-time friend, collaborator and fellow Mind supporter, Dennis Okwera. As they explain:

“WITHIN” is an ode to our myriad of collective experiences with mental health – an attempt of visually conveying the spectrum of sensations we’ve felt during the navigation of our individual conditions.”
