– An innovative short film exploring the concept of overload and its impact on mental health.

How does living in South London affect overload, what effect does it have on the senses, and how do people cope with it? A thoughtful and entertaining mix of perspectives, including interviews and dramatizations as well as a dramatic poetry performance by a group of youth.

This film was made by mental health service users through Hearts and Minds, a creative arts programme. Director/producer/editor Ivan Riches is currently promoting the film on Twitter and welcomes your comments.
