Why I Disappeared

In Why I Disappeared, a young girl explains the cause of her disappearance with a visual depiction of her battle with depression.

Maya Sarfowah is a novelist, first-time filmmaker, creative director, mental health advocate, and a student of the University of London, studying Psychology.

Maya says: “This film is based on my experience with depression in the year 2018. I am extremely glad to be able to turn something that I thought was going to kill me, into something that I hope is going to save somebody out there.

Let us continue to care for our loved ones, friends, family, strangers, and anyone we encounter.

Depression is real.”

Why I Disappeared can be found in Shorts Block No. 1 of the virtual festival.
