The inspiration for most of my work comes from reading non-fiction. In an attempt to more intuitively grasp the theory, I try to reconstruct it using visual material. For my film, ‘So Sick’, I started from the book ‘Capitalist Realism’ by Mark Fisher. In which he elaborates on the inescapability of capitalism in contemporary society aswell as all the mental health issues that follow suit. My film medidates on alienation under capitalism, specifically from the other and the self. My character is searching for meaning in a meaningless world.
