Short film, 15 min
In a cutting-edge Swedish suicide prevention facility, Anna roams the corridors in isolation, communicating only via computer screens. After a technical glitch leads her to another patient, Angelica, their subsequent meetings spark doubts: were they ever truly ill, or is something else at play?
Storage delves into the unsettling consequence of technology overreach. As companies explore online therapy and broad-scale mental health solutions, we're forced to confront a poignant question: What if the very technology meant to aid us becomes the biggest offender?
Storage, filmed before the pandemic, offers a prescient exploration of social isolation and screen-mediated connections in the era before global lockdowns. Now, the film serves not only as a narrative but also as a time capsule, capturing our perceptions pre-pandemic. It underscores how external events can reshape the interpretation of a story.
