Room On Fire

Panic attacks are roiling, dizzying paroxysms of pure terror: nauseating, sweaty, heart-thumping, existential ordeals made even worse because some part of the mind understands there’s nothing, really, to fear. In this richly colored, highly personal short film, filmmaker Sindha Agha explains how she “lost track” of what she should actually be afraid of, and how she brought herself back to reality—with the help of an unlikely spirit animal.
