Suffering is the Easy Part


Suffering is the Easy Part is a short, partially animated documentary about trauma, trauma's aftermath, depression and the healing process. The film is a voice over narrative that chronicles a sexual assault, the crushing silence and depression surrounding survivors afterward, the mental health issues that arise in the wake of trauma and the healing power of art. The story is about how to overcome the worst moments of our lives and ultimately find happiness and success at the end of a dark journey.
