Bram Cartigny (in production)
Where do we find the truth about ourselves? Is it in the features we display, the diagnoses we receive, the names we carry? But what lies beneath these labels? Do we have ADHD or do we just get the title? What are we, except chaotic, distracted, disorganised? What if ADHD is not the only truth about ourselves? What if our name is short for something else?
When Their Fiction Became Our Reality centers around Bram, who happens to be the director, on a quest to know more about the diagnosis he once received. By talking to peers and experts, he tries to figure out how this label has affected his development. If it has at all. In a world where individuality and diversity are hard to ignore, why are we so keen to make everything as normal as possible?
After winning the VAF Wildcard for his graduation work Pater Familias, Bram Cartigny is now making this mid-length creative documentary.
