Shadowlandsis an animated short film about the darkness within, illustrated as a black bird. It’s about just wanting to pull the covers over your head and hide from the world. About doctors asking if you’re looking for sick leave when all you want is to be well. But it is also a film about being acknowledged, and realising you are not alone.
