On The Subject Of Depression: A Short Visual Experience

On The Subject Of Depression: A Short Visual Experience

On The Subject Of Depression is a one-minute animated short film by artist/animator Scott Benson.  Depending on which statistics you’re observing, depression effects between 5 to 10 percent of the world’s population, and it’s a major factor leading to countless suicides.  It’s not a pleasant topic, but it’s obviously a social issue of large importance.  Benson has opened up about his own experiences with the disorder in this new short film, stating that he made the film “hoping it would be cathartic for me and maybe a bit comforting for others who might have similar issues.”

Can you now recall all that you have known?
Will you never fall
When the light has flown?
Tell me all that you may know
Show me what you have to show
Won’t you come and say
If you know the way to blue?

-Nick Drake, 1969
