One Woman is an hypnotic dreamscape, in which the audience, through binaural sound, is drawn inside the mind of a woman who grew up with severe depression and BPD as she tries to find the answer to who she was, how she came to be that person, who she might have been, and who she is now. The audience is taken right to the heart of the most difficult memories, but in an allusive rather than hit-you-on-the-head-with-it kind of way; a way that ultimately transcends the past and points the way to different future, one in which the memories lose their grip, and with that loss, the power of the abuser fades.
The images, both verbal and visual, are beautiful. The binaural sound, which wraps around each audience member individually in a protective cocoon, allows the audience to interact with the material on their own terms, while accessibility is built into the film by artistically organic text.
Cheryl will accompany the film with an introductory talk and a Q&A session.
