Three Lithuanians reflect on the time when they first began to hear voices, and relive life-changing incidents they’ve experienced since. Torment or blessing? Each has a unique take on the condition. A documentary about living with the voices that set you apart.

 

About the directors:

Elvina hails from Lithuania, and David from Canada. The two met in London and founded Broken Island Films. Together they have made three short films, a drama and two documentaries. While co-directing, Elvina takes charge of the image, and David the sound. They share a fascination with the ambiguities of human perception, particulary in relation to experiences of the inner life. Their latest film, Voices Apart , was recently shortlisted by the UK-based Arts and Humanities Research Council for the Research in Film Awards 2020.
