Making my two short films, I discovered my love for exploring filmic language. They were heavy on form, and I had an ironic detachment from the content. That was all well and good. But with PSYCHOSIA I wanted to do something different: stick to a potent and experimental language, but combined with content that was more involved and closer to myself.
