Synopsis: Age 18 Meg started hearing a voice. She tried ignoring it, didn’t tell a soul, yet the voice grew. More abusive, more delusional and often completely out of her control. Eventually, her paranoia wore her down. She experienced “an explosion of mental health”, followed by years of medical intervention and institutions.

Bridging the Gap offers a snapshot of Meg’s world as she grapples with the boundaries between her internal delusions and her everyday life. This film will challenge your perspective on hearing voices, open your eyes on medicalisation, and beg the question ‘what even is reality?’

Director's Statement

The film was collaboratively produced between Meg herself and director, Nina Ross, blending animation crafted from Meg’s own illustrations and diaries, with photographs and live footage. It was made during lock-down by sending camera’s into hospital where Meg could record herself, crafting intimate insight into her environment. “It’s about time I show people who can’t share my experiences what I actual have to deal with. What better way than to make this film?” Meg Barrett
