What does violence without context make us feel?

My entry explores the impact of violence on the human brain. I set out to make a piece of art that made people uncomfortable and made them confront how they feel about violence without meaning in film.

The story was inspired by a true event, a close friend was wounded and walked from Calton to the Royal Infirmary. It felt like the personification of the dark night of the soul and made me want to capture the aftermath of this moment of violence as visceral and unglamorised as possible.
