Alfiya (2014) Online
This is a film that explores a single day in the life of it's protagonist, Alfiya. The film follows an indefinite progression: an oscillation between the social world and the inner life. Alfiya, a young girl in her twenties, grapples with blurred lines of perception which as likely stem from a ' delusional disorder', or a phobia, to an unshakable dream state. The film itself is a discussion of lines- the kind of elusive, easily blurred lines that exist between perception and reality, normalcy and insanity, past and present and finally the line between realistic and melodramatic portraits of clinical psychology. Mental illness is the last great taboo of our society- it is varied and complex. And rarely admitted.
