EVERYDAY, 7min., India, Animation
Directed by Smita Minda
Everyday is a film about eco-anxiety, and how it keeps a girl named Judith from being able to have fun even at a birthday lunch with her friends. Having read too many articles full of bad news, and seen videos of the world coming to an end, she cannot help but see the darkness in everything around her.
'Everyday' is a very personal film about eco - anxiety, and how it impacts my day to day life.
Growing up, I always had trouble explaining to my friends and family what I was struggling with and how exhausting the non-stop worrying about our planet's doom and other's ignorance could get. It was so important to me to be able to finally express those feelings through images and sound. With this film, I hope some of the audience members can find comfort in knowing that they're not alone with their anxieties, and some can empathise more with their friends who struggle as well. I hope the Judith's of the world can find some peace and hope that the world will be okay.
