TW: disordered eating, menstruation
Crying Girl (2016) began life as a series of poems based on recurring dreams I'd had in my first semester of art school, trying to make sense of my new fears and anxieties. I was drinking heavily and regularly for the first time in my life, I wasn't eating, and my periods had stopped. I agonised over seeming desirable at all times and had hysterical black out episodes. I started worrying that I'd never be able to conceive. This film was my attempt at making sense of everything.
