Filmmaker Ahang Bashi turns the camera on herself in this probing documentary about living with anxiety. Beset by crippling panic attacks and bouts of anxiety and depression, Bashi sets out to investigate whether her condition is linked to her past. Bashi’s anxiety is attributed to the trauma of fleeing Iran for sanctuary in Sweden as a child and integrating into a new culture. This intimate self-portrait is searingly honest in its treatment of this deeply affecting disorder.
Fragility will be followed by a discussion panel exploring themes of anxiety and mental health.
