How can something be made understandable that eludes the average reality experience of most people?

»CIRCULAR INSANITY — emotions of a bipolar person – an experimental short« is an attempt to translate the different states of a bipolar affective disorder (euthymia, mania and depression) into cinematic images which, without being explanatory, allow the viewer to gain an insight into the inner workings of a bipolar person through empathy.

The aim is to promote education and understanding through empathy, as well as to contribute to the reduction of stigmas and lack of understanding towards the clinical picture of bipolar disorder, as well as towards neurodivergence in general.
