Nyctophobia

About the film

Nyctophobia is an essay-documentary about psychological distress. Jean-François Boisvenue tells us about his childhood fears and his history of mental illness. On the screen, we can see a series of hand-drawn animations projected onto his body that plunges us into psychosis and depersonalization. The whole was captured by the camera without postproduction effects.
