An abstract meditation on depression and anxiety by Austrian director Stefan Pecher. Especially in light of current global events, “Cycles” addresses a topic Pecher feels is more important than ever:

“The withdrawal of freedom and closeness to people, pushes our own psyche into a corner. We visualized the depression, distortion of reality and created a mystical but at the same time beautiful short film with a strong message.”
